Niko Neko Matcha
Niko Neko Matcha is well-known for their emphasis on the quality of their matcha powder. As a result, they’ve earned the name of being Malaysians’ go-to spot for anything matcha related!
Their primary matcha powders are:
- Ren (which signifies lotus flower)
- Yuri (white lily)
- Kiku (chrysanthemum)
They’re named after the flowers grown by co-founder Syun Hattori’s late grandmother in her garden in Japan.
Ren is of ceremonial grade. It’s incredibly smooth, with a strong umami taste that is best described as creamy, nutty and rich. The aromatic Yuri is the most readily accessible – light on umami and perfect for culinary use, whereas the Kiku has a slightly umami and bitter flavour.
The contrast between the three is the profile of bitterness and umami, which depends entirely on your preference.

- Matcha Burnt Cheesecake
- Genmaicha Choux
