All you need to start preparing matcha! It makes a great gift for people making a new start in life!
This matcha starter kit puts all the basic essentials required for making matcha part of your daily life in one box—except the hot water. It includes our Special Spring Matcha Nodoka, in an attractive package with a spring motif. Spring is the season for embarking on new things in Japan, and this is the perfect set for beginning to make matcha part of your life.
This tea goes exceedingly well with sweet Japanese confections and Western sweets. Autumn is the time when crops ripen and trees produce their fruit. Confectioners use this natural bounty to produce a multitude of rich and sweet confections that are only available during this season. When you see chestnut or pumpkin sweets in the shops, remember how well they would go with Tsukikage. This is a matcha we recommend for people trying Ippodo matcha for the first time.
Who do Ippodo staff give it to?
New students going off to uni (your friends' children). It's perfect for celebrating getting into college.
