From Ippodo

Ippodo is offering a special, limited seasonal offer, premium matcha called Tsukikage that is a perfect way to welcome in the autumn, available only in autumn until November.

It has a rich, multilayered flavor. It tantalizes your mouth with a hint of sharpness overlaid with a billowing sweetness. Also, the fresh fragrance that fills the air when this matcha is whisked and that remains on your tongue after drinking leaves you feeling happy and relaxed.

Tsukikage has an extremely refined, rich flavor that is distinctive from the matcha we normally sell throughout the rest of the year. With its splendid balance of sharpness, sweetness, and umami, you’ll find yourself asking for another cup. Tsukikage is the perfect thing to enjoy on a beautiful autumn day with some Japanese sweets.

Brown and decorated with a tea blossom, the autumn-themed package reminds you of the beauty of the season. Suited for use both in the tea ceremony and home use, Tsukikage is an ideal seasonal gift for matcha lovers.

Beautiful brown box that is marked in Japanese and English.
Cost is on par with high quality Matchas
Matcha comes in a foil pouch.
I cut open the pouch and put the powder in an empty matcha container.
I made a iced cup of Matcha.
This matcha, like other premium matchas I have tried, has tiny clumps that will need to be whisked up.
Matcha has nice green color.
I bought this tea in NYC location after reading the review at www.teaformeplease.com by Nicole Martin. Nicole has a great blog.

- Limited seasonal offer, a perfect way to welcome in the autumn.
- Tsukikage means “moonlight” in Japanese.

Very enjoyable and deeply impressed! It is a very nice bittersweet aftertaste and overall a delicious matcha. However, I would not recommend this for a daily matcha.

The powder has a wonderful strong aroma and the taste lingers for a long time, the smell of the matcha will fill the room for awhile, it smells so nice.

The color is brilliant deep dark green. I opened the matcha bag on a sunny day, the color in the bag really stood out. The powder is fine yet more dense, perhaps it is more moist.

Recommend it to those who do like little bittersweet and strong after taste. And those who enjoy a caffeine kick from their matcha.

Quantity of Matcha Powder:1.5 heaping of tea ladle/chasaku
