Celebrate the Year of the Ox with Ippodo’s limited-edition New Year’s Ushi-mukashi Matcha Tin. From December until mid-January, Ippodo releases a limited-edition Special New Year’s matcha to usher in the upcoming year.

In celebration of 2021, Ippodo’s Year of the Ox label depicts a mild-mannered ox calmly stretched out on the ground taking a restful break.

Ippodo’s master blenders prepare a matcha whose flavor and fragrance is unique to each year. This year’s matcha features a remarkable sweet fragrance with a mellow flavor and umami blossoming through the finish. Its low astringency makes it a good choice for beginners, while its rich fragrance and long finish make it a favorite for matcha lovers.

A high-grade matcha blend, its vibrant green fits with the celebratory New Year's season.
