Ippodo Tea Ikuyo Matcha - 30g
Medium & Snappy
Ikuyo from Ippodo Tea is a medium-bodied matcha that strikes a harmonious balance between astringency, sweetness, and umami. This matcha's unique character is akin to sun-dried straw, offering a gently bright aroma that complements its flavor profile. Enjoy Ikuyo as usucha, a pleasing everyday matcha that pairs well with sweets, or create an appealing and photogenic matcha latte with its vibrant green hue and slight astringency.
