Blend 99 is beautifully grassy, creamy and naturally sweet. Pretty heavenly!!

I received my 100g pouch of blend 99 a few days ago. I ordered this blend on blind faith. I had purchased blend 94 and really enjoyed it. I decided to turn it up a few notches. I immediately noticed the gentle smoothness and a cacao-like feel. There was no bitterness, slightly acidic and so green it was electric. Immediately upon drinking it a rush of focus and energy kicked in. I swear, I feel like Bradley Cooper in "Limitless" when I drink this stuff. I love it! The better the quality, the better I feel. It really makes a difference. My next move will be to try blend 100. I really believe that the experience matcha offers outweighs the price you pay for it, which might seem high. The million dollar question is Why can't this amazing matcha be snorted???!

This spectacular matcha has a subtlety and joy that is unlike any other I have tasted. It's fresh, approachable, smooth and gentle, but it has a sturdy backbone that holds you up like leaning on a beautiful, friendly tree.

I had never tried Matcha before and decided to give it a go. I was surprised at the taste the first time I made it. I thought, "I'll learn to like this". As I continued to drink it, I found I enjoyed it more and more and found that it was perfect for my afternoon lull. I would drink it late afternoon and teach my fitness class afterwards and my energy felt really good and natural. I still have coffee in the morning, but my new 'go to' drink in the afternoon is Matcha 99!

I have been a tea devotee for decades now. I drink more pots of tea a day than I care to admit and I have grown more finicky over the years. While I love a great cup of Sencha or Gyrokura, I have been continually frustrated by Matcha. My Zen teachers treat me to their artful whisking, but I have stumbled through the Matcha selection and brewing process without success. Until now. I learned about buying and brewing from the Breakaway site. And Blend 99 is wonderful. Clean, savory, stimulating, and special. I feel my life of tea is now complete!

Sweet, smooth, with body. Its my daily drinker matcha giving me an 'up' alertness without the caffeine feeling. Love it.

I have been drinking matcha for about 7 years since I first had it at a high end ryokan/spa in Hakone. I read the other reviews and thought I knew matcha, but I was amazed at my first sip of blend 99: lively, sweet and an amazing mouth feel - I think this is what Eric means by the umami. There is no bitterness -- zip, nada, none. Yes, it's great.

I love my Breakaway Matcha green tea, and have tried Blends 94, 97, 99, and 100. I love matcha's psychedlic green color and its creamy frothiness. I also love the meditative process of preparing the tea for myself. It is such a pleasure. I genuinely enjoy them all, but my favorite is Blend 99. It has the heartiness of 94 with the elegance of 100. Can't recommend Breakaway Matcha enough!

Breakaway Matcha Blend 99, is my go to, and travel with, beverage of choice. For the past 2 and 1/2 years I indulge in the affordable luxury of this matcha everyday. While the taste is sublime, the benefits of a clearer mind and rejuvenated spirit linger. Sipping this matcha is transformative.

My first experience with Blend 99 was nothing short of divine! Every layer of the sip had something interesting to offer. Creamy, earthy, grassy, but bright and light. I felt elated (in that unmistakably matcha sort of way)and completely nourished, as though I had just put a potent bundle of goodness into my body. This is the blend that I will keep going to with deep appreciation and infatuation.
