- Katrina Penarandasept. 25, 2018, 02:09Ever since my first tea ceremony experience, I've wanted to get my hands on the best matcha just to see the difference. Seeing the reviews for the taiko san, I took the plunge to try this matcha even though this isnt normally what I get with my budget.
My verdict: This matcha IS the best matcha I've ever tasted. It is simply no comparison with the previous matchas I've bought. From the moment I've opened it, the grassy vegetable smell is intense and I cannot stop admiring that wonderful shade of green. I didnt taste a hint of bitterness whatsoever and the sweet grassy taste lingers a bit. It froths so well when whisking for usucha. I recommend going for koicha since this brings out the best experience for its intense flavor. Its just sooo good I'm totally in love.
Now that I've gotten a taste, I doubt I'm going to enjoy different matchas as much as I have with taiko san. Maybe I'll consider getting the manten next to compare the two. The bar is set that high.
The quality is indeed worth the price. Not too practical if you're going for teas to consume regularly though I'll probably get this in times I need to spoil myself.
- Stanislav Gálfymars 1, 2018, 06:19Taste and smell of this matcha are absolutely exquisite, yet most off all i appreciate its almost instant effects - this tea is a liquid calmness.
- Shaun Siasept. 28, 2017, 00:03Very expensive (most expensive so far I have tried) but worth it definitely, the quality speaks for itself.
- RAsept. 25, 2017, 20:47Absolutely outstanding. In my time I have had many matcha teas but this one is just simply the best I have ever come across. Not cheap for sure but we are talking here of a matcha as good as it gets. Thank you very much for keeping this matcha in stock.
- NYCTeaaoût 29, 2017, 07:23Wow, incredible matcha -- a feast for all of the senses. Beautifully vibrant color and apple-y, grassy flavor. Just reordered.
- Andrew Mcmahonaoût 6, 2017, 22:35By far the best matcha I have tried. Wasn't bitter at all slightly sweet with a nice smooth umami taste.
- Njuil. 14, 2017, 01:19You won't be able to have other so-called "ceremonial" matcha anymore. Great packaging and robust matcha that is truly top quality.
- Happy Dogmai 17, 2017, 08:37The best of the best. I have been consuming a couple tins of the and the Matcha Manten a month for years.

Can you list the cultivars please?févr. 21, 2022, 15:21
The grower of this exquisite matcha does not give the exact cultivars he is using for it.

Hi is the 2019 Taiko-san available yet?
And I'm sure there is preference involved but in comparison to ippodo
Would you consider this product superior?mars 18, 2019, 10:02
Matcha isn’t typically released until the fall of any year. I mean, you might find it earlier than fall but the best is not released until then. So we’re talking September-October before 2019 Taiko is released.
All I can say is that Taiko, and also Manten, just might be two of the best matcha on the planet.

Do you have 2016 stock for matcha taiko-san?mai 16, 2016, 01:58
Not yet. Matcha (and gyokuro) taste best when they are aged for about 3-4 months, which is why they are usually released in the fall.
