Description: Hanaka is a smooth and decadent Matcha with a satisfying dark chocolate aroma. Hanaka translates to "Summer flower" and embodies the soft, sweet breezes of southern Japan. Made from select tea leaves from Yame prefecture that were shaded 20 days, harvested and gently processed. Yame represents the future of Matcha production and Hanaka could be the poster child for what we love about this region: incredible fragrance, low astringency, a soft cocoa-y nuttiness, and an undeniable value. We don't take the task of sourcing our teas lightly - and more are passed over than chosen for our catalog. But We loved this tea from the first sip and are confident it will be a classic. We know our customers demand the highest standards and we are certain Hanaka will exceed them.
What we love about this tea: Hanaka's charm is in its ease. This tea brews up wonderfully regardless. Some days you might not want to measure water or matcha powder - and from our tests, Hanaka turns delivers under almost all circumstances. Hot, Cold, as a (decadent) latte. It just tastes great. Period.

This is a solid 4/5 for me - agree there's a bit of chocolatey-ness, but full green matcha flavor mostly. Great matcha for the price!
My order never arrived
This matcha is rich in color, aroma, and flavor. Its not bitter or fishy. It’s one of my favorites.
Delicious as just matcha or even with a little steamed oat milk.
Literally the best matcha I have ever had in my life. I have been drinking matcha for the last 8 years and this stuff is amazing. So good and the Matcha chocolate is unreal. I live in PA and will order from them forever. :)))))
