A fellow graduate student’s girlfriend is from Japan and I couldn’t help but ask him if by any chance she drinks matcha and if she does, what brand of matcha would she recommend? Well, as luck would have it, not only does she drink matcha every day, but her auntie is ----this is literally what she is ---- a master of the ancient art of the matcha tea ceremony. She literally prepares ceremonial matcha for a living. My classmate promised to ask his girlfriend to call her aunt in Japan and ask what brand of matcha she used. Long story short, her auntie got back to her and recommended three brands through email: two of which were in Japanese Kanji and are apparently only available through Japanese language websites. The third was Ippodo brand matcha and I found it here on amazon. It was about the same price as a ceremonial 1 oz tin of DoMatcha and I happily purchased it. Ippodo, according to her auntie, is a very popular brand in Japan, kind of the standard for matcha; not as prestigious as one brand she mentioned (could only find that brand at a Japanese website), and not her personal favorite either (like the other brand that I couldn’t find at all), but it is still highly regarded by her auntie, the master of tea ceremonies, and by others.
The only issue that would affect my purchasing decisions has to do with the length of delivery time. I got my Ippodo matcha about a month early and that still meant a one-month wait.Read more ›
