Ikuyo Matcha 30g box
Ikuyo (Ikuyo-no-mukashi) is a balanced matcha with astringency, umami, and sweetness in proportion.
Ippodo describes it's medium-light body as "joined by a gentle, but bright aroma, like sun-dried straw."
As usucha, it is a good option for everyday teatime, served straight and with cookies, cakes, or other deserts.
One of Ippodo's top recommendations for a matcha latte, Ikuyo has slight astringency that pairs well with the milk, and its bright green color makes for a picture-worthy beverage.
