Now available: Special Spring Matcha Nodoka

Our limited seasonal matcha called Nodoka is available only in spring, from now until April 30th.
* The word “Nodoka” is a Japanese word that means “tranquil,” which is exactly how we feel when we sit down for matcha in the late afternoon.

Nodoka is the perfect matcha to accompany your spring time quiet moments. Tasty as either usucha (thin matcha), or as koicha (thick matcha), this accessible matcha is loved for its smooth taste and its long, full finish. Of course, you can also make Nodoka as a latte, matcha affogato (koicha poured over ice cream), or pair it with cakes, cookies, and Japanese sweets like mochi.

We also recommend Nodoka, with its understated pink package, for spring occasions that call for a little gift.

【Sale period】 February 1st~April 30th
