Description


We're thrilled to present ICHIKO—a fragrant, premium ceremonial-grade matcha from Sonogi (Nagasaki) crafted with Tsuyuhikari and Sae midori cultivars.

Before whisking ICHIKO, enjoy its emerald-green powder, its lightly sweet aroma boasting nutty and floral notes. Then to prepare, use 80C/176F water and 2g of powder to brew a silky, smooth matcha with hints of roasted almonds, flower notes, and robust umami. Its light astringency accentuates its sweet flavor.

Nakayama san, along with 3 tea producers, has blazed a path in Sonogi's tea industry by creating the first Sonogi-grown and made matcha, in accordance with strict EU regulations. Hand-in-hand with a ceremonial-grade matcha master from Uji, they've created a unique matcha of Sonogi terroir.

Matcha Ichiko

This tastes great and exactly what you would expect from the website description (lightly floral). One of my new favorites for sure!

ICHIKO

An invigorating matcha. I've discovered that it is best brewed hot and thick. (Often I prefer matcha that is more diluted than traditional usucha, at temperatures around 75C.) This brings out the vegetal sweetness in the aroma, as well as a whiff of sea air. Both of these scents are also present in the empty cup, along with a wonderful fruity note — green perfume.
