JAS organic certified matcha with a rich umami flavour and refreshing aftertaste.
How does it taste?
The first thing you notice is its fresh, verdant fragrance, which derives from the tea plant and brings to mind images of Mother Earth. The first sip gives you a rich umami flavour, followed by a refreshing aftertaste. This balanced matcha has both the distinctive mellow flavour of matcha as well as the light taste for which Japanese tea is well-known.
How/when to enjoy it?
Savour it when you want to feel refreshed after a large meal. Try it instead of espresso or coffee.
What to enjoy it with?
Enjoy it with biscuits that have a simple taste, or during a short tea break.
How do Ippodo staff enjoy it?
It’s a relaxing matcha to enjoy while basking in the morning sun on a day off. Drinking it while listening to music is soothing. Drinking it during a break from work on the computer is re-energising, helping to get the work done.
About our organic matcha
This tea is cultivated and processed under conditions that comply with the requirements for JAS organic certification. Organically grown tea leaves are cultivated entirely through natural processes until harvested, so the size of the harvest and flavour of the tea vary from year to year. The difficulty of cultivating organic tea leaves of stable quality and quantity in challenging conditions makes them very rare. We think you will truly enjoy this organic matcha, which possesses a natural bold flavour and fragrance.
