New Pull-Top Can, Same Great Matcha

Added on by the ikebana shop.

Our matcha now comes in new, shiny cans! It’s not just a facelift; it brings more functionality and convenience. The new cans are pull-top. The matcha stays freshly sealed until you pull it open.


We retire the inside foil bag, which served well to protect the matcha from exposure (thank you for your service!). but was messy when scooping the tea out! Now, the can can be the container when opened. The lid is lined to make it more air-tight when firmly closed.


Contents remain the same at net 40g but there is a small change in price. Old price: 19.00. New price: 19.50. Well worth the extra convenience!

No-Bag Discount

Added on by the ikebana shop.

We know you like our green plastic bags; but for those times when you tell us: “I don’t need a bag.” we’d like to thank you somehow. So, on a trial basis for the month of December, we’ll give you 5¢ back every time you forgo a plastic bag. It’s a small gesture but hopefully it adds that extra encouragement to reduce the one-time use of plastic bags.

No worries if you do need a bag, we’ll still have them for you!


Happy shopping! See you soon!
