Hello everyone. My name is Nishiki from I've been a fan of this wonderful forum for a couple of years but it is the first time to comment.
I just want to explain why the package could be the same.
The package we use for this matcha is a ready-made thing, not an original package, so it is possible that other tea companies use same package. We decided to use this ready-made package in order to reduce the price as the competition in the tea market has been increased.

Thank you.
I agree with you, I have a first hand experience, Horaido and Hibiki-an have the absolute same green and red matcha can, but that doesn`t mean that they sell the same tea, they buy the cans from the same supplier, and that is not a problem, the can does not indiviualises the tea, you have to trust the vendor and taste the tea.

I like Aoi and Aiya brands pretty well. I've had the premium/ceremonial grades.
