Ippodo Tea Horai Matcha - 20g
Rich & Smooth
This rich and smooth matcha from Ippodo Tea is an inviting and accessible blend that's just as fitting for the first-time matcha drinker as it is for the seasoned connoisseur. A touch of umami sweetness paired with a hint of astringency gives this blend its distinctive character. Enjoy it as a traditional koicha, or prepare it as usucha for a lighter experience. Horai's bright color and soft astringency make it an excellent choice for matcha lattes as well.
