Description

Sencha and matcha together - the best of the green tea universe in your cup! Carefully prepared by Koga san for IKKYU, this sweet and fragrant green tea is a blend of organic sencha and ceremonial organic matcha, both made from Yabukita cultivar.

A stunning and delicious green tea, with a vibrant and luminous color, this tea is exactly what you need during summer. You will be amazed by the absolute lack of bitterness of MIZUHO. This special blend was made by Koga san with one goal in mind: creating a refreshing and healthy drink to cope with the hot and humid summer in Kyushu.

Prepare it as a regular sencha to enjoy it hot, or for delicious iced tea, mix 5g of leaves with 500ml of cold water in a bottle, store in the fridge for about an hour, and it's ready! As an extra benefit, you can refill the bottle using the same leaves a couple of times over twenty-four hours.

Balanced and Energetic Tea

The matcha taste is very present, but it fades with following brews. The first and second brew were enough to give a lot of energy and alertness as you would expect with a matcha. This tea especially shines when ice or cold brewed. Using those brewing methods the taste reaches its full potential in my opinion. You also don't need as many leaves (only 5g for 500ml). Will definitely be buying this tea for cold brewing again.

Mild Matcha or strong Sencha

The tea's description is a matcha & sencha blend. I imagined the sencha is mixed with the powder matcha I know. But, I can hardly see the powder. As far as I can see, sencha dominates the blend. I experimented with brew time and amount of tea. The tea can be mild and soothing and can pack a strong umami flavor depending on how one experiments with it. 45 seconds of brew time personally gave me the best of both worlds. Your mileage may vary.

The first cup is an amazingly bright green, with an attractive aroma, both grassy and sweet (almost floral). You can clearly taste the matcha. Later cups are much milder, but with a nice lingering sweetness. Summery and refreshing. I loved it.
