In a nutshell: I have tried these matcha brands: DoMatcha (ceremonial and second harvest), Seredipitea, Teazer’s brand matcha, Maeda En (universal blend), and ebay generic matcha my friend gave me. Before Ippodo became my gold standard, I loved DoMatcha the most. But then, this happened and I fell in love with the brilliant green, smooth powder that is Ippodo matcha:
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.

After trying several different types of matcha, I can say that Ippodo Matcha is higher quality tea. I would recommended this brand to a friend.

The Tea is excellent. Its an authentic and tasty Matcha tea. As soon as you open it your hit with that distinct strong fragrance and bright green color. The container is smaller than i anticipated but I should have paid closer attention to the information on the listing. I recommend this tea but it is expensive. However, after trying several brands this has been my favorite.

Expensive experiment. It is kind of tasty and you get used to the flavor eventually but I have not managed to make a non bitter batch and for $30+ dollars I think it's a rather expensive thing to try out and not be totally stoked on. I have been putting it in my smoothies in the morning so I can get all the health benefits and antioxidants without the bitter taste. The color is beautiful bright green, and compared to the other Matchas I've seen this one definitely it looks very alive and pure. It's a high grade product just very difficult to make properly

I prefer this over the more expensive Unmon-no-Mukashi. This Sayakano was mellower and was a little creamier than the sharper flavor of the Unmon-no-Mukashi. Kyoto Ippodo also offers an autumn/fall varietal called Tsukikage with a similar creamy mellowness, but even more so. Matcha comes in a foil pouch inside the tin.

Wow, this is the real deal. I bought this stuff and couldn't understand a thing on the label, but boy does it taste good! You only need a half teaspoon or teaspoon at the most, it's top grade ceremonial matcha. You can taste the difference compared to the cheap stuff (color, texture, taste are all different). Delicious!
