make the perfect cup of matcha

A feisty, gorgeous matcha that's ready to slap you with its attitude.

Racy. Fantastic color, heady aromas, intense "matcha" taste (think strong green tea ice cream), faint twinges of bitterness (which gives it its sass).

Plenty of umami and natural sweetness means it pairs beautifully with food, especially sweets. Makes the world's best matcha salt.

If Breakaway Blend 100 is a great Burgundy along the lines of Romanee-Conti, and Breakaway Blends 99 and 97 are coveted, cult Napa cabernets, Breakaway Blend 94 is more like a "vintner's reserve" from a top producer: a beautiful epicurean experience and phenomenal value that soars above similarly priced matcha. Has verve and power, like a zen wake-up stick.

From Tawara, Uji, Kyoto Prefecture.

  1. One of my better habits

    Posted by Zach on 24th Jan 2013

    Honestly, this is just great tea. I like it because it's richer than steeped teas (reminds me more of espresso but with green crema). Also, you feel good after you drink it. I stopped drinking coffee because it had the opposite effect.

    It's not totally necessary, but I'd recommend the matcha tool kit (or at least a portable frother). the frother really brings the crema and aromas to life. I'm looking forward to trying the higher blends and comparing.


  2. I drink my bourbon straight.

    Posted by Sam on 23rd Jan 2013

    When choosing a Breakaway blend, I reasoned that since I like my coffee black, my bourbon straight, and my beer dark, the Blend 94 would be the way to go. I find the 94 to deliver the aroma of a freshly mowed country lawn (read: less manicured, suburban lawn, more hearty, untamed grassland) and a taste similar to a rich, barrel-aged stout... or at least, the green-tea version of a stout: a very slight bitterness that disappears for a wonderfully smooth aftertaste. With a built-in wake-you-up laser-focus that trumps coffee on its best day. What's not to like?

  • add one heaping scoop (1/2 teaspoon, or 1 g) to the sieve, and sift
  • pour about an inch of hot water (about 2 ounces)
  • whisk for 10 seconds or so, tilt the creamer slightly to make thicker foam
  • swirl, and pour the matcha into your heated cup
