make the perfect cup of matcha

Similar body and texture to Breakaway Blend 99, color is wildly vibrant. Mouth entry is wondrous and seamless.

The tea is sweet, with no trace of bitterness (this is rare in the matcha world). Clean and harmonious. It's surreally good, better than anything we've ever tasted with the exception of the 99 and 100.

The crema is rich, thick, and delightful. If you've never tasted the 99 or 100, you would swear that matcha couldn't possibly get any tastier. A fantastic bargain given the quality. From Ogura, Uji (Kyoto), Japan's oldest and most distinguished matcha appellation.

  1. So far the best! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Nov 2016

    Just like it says it in the description that if you have not tried the 99 or 100 blend then you will think this is the best....and that is spot on. I especially love the sauteed mushroom and cacao notes with an intensity and kick unlike some of the more floral and aromatic varieties. So far this one is my favorite. I do want to try the 99 and 100 blend since they seem to be very enjoyable, but I know that next time I will be buying a big bag of this one, regardless, because I already know I would be overjoyed to drink it every single day.

  2. Great tasting 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Nov 2016

    I have tried the blend 100 and the blend 97 and even the cold matcha. I thought the 100 and 97 were similar in taste in that they were not bitter and had a nice smooth quality to them. Just for comparison I tried a matcha that I bought in the supermarket and it was no where near the quality of the Matcha's from Breakaway Matcha.

  3. Like a fine Sunrise 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Oct 2016

    Blend 97 is an experience everyone should have. In my opinion the flavor is astonishing. There is no bitterness and great for the daily matcha cup. Silky and creamy while hinting at its earthy tones buried in sweetness and layers of energy and light. A fascinating matcha that is reminiscent of a fine sunrise.

  4. green and yummy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Oct 2016

    I love the blend 97, it is my go to matcha. The beauty of this matcha is it's wonderful flavor and the fact that after drinking, I have enough energy to get all my work done for the day. Life is just better with blend 97.

  5. Great Matcha 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Sep 2016

    This matcha is delicious. It has no bitterness, has great color, consistency, and sweet flavor. Breakaway provides great quality and customer service.

  6. delicious 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Aug 2016

    I have been drinking matcha for a few years from other purveyors. Since discovering Breakaway Matcha, I have no reason to try another again. I started with the 93 blend, then moved on to 95 but I have to say that I like blend 97 the best so far. So smooth, no bitterness, just delicious!

  7. Now THIS is matcha! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2016

    I discovered matcha green tea a few years ago and thought I was getting top quality stuff when I bought my matcha from Teavana. Though theirs is a good matcha that is reasonably priced, I didn't know any better and I eventually wondered if this was really the best matcha. I did some research and found breakaway matcha and haven't looked back since! The 94 blend is the same price as the matcha I used to buy religiously yet I know the 94 matcha would still be superior even with the similar price tag! As for blend 97, I love to get this blend during breakaway's awesome 20% off sales. If you're a matcha fanatic like me, breakaway is hands down the best there is!

  8. New to Matcha 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th May 2016

    This is the first Matcha I have tried. I will say it took a couple of days to get used to the taste. I found how important not boiling the water is and how it effects the taste. I started with 97 and will most likely try different ones just to compare.
    I'm giving it 5 stars on how I feel. It gives me energy, made me feel focused, helped control my appetite, and gives your body a "cleanse". I don't feel I need to try other brands when I'm extremely happy with Breakaway Matcha.

  9. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th May 2016

    The best matcha I've bought so far. I've tried other organic brands on Amazon and in health stores, none was as good as this one. No bitterness at all. Great energy.

  10. Like a fine wine 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Apr 2016

    4 stars only because Breakaway claims they have even better ones that I haven't tried yet. Amazingly fresh and delicious, a revelation of what the best matcha can be. There really is a difference!

  11. Oh my 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Apr 2016

    I wish I could have seen the look on my own face when I took my first sip of blend 97. It was far superior to the "premium" stuff I'd been getting from my local importer. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because I'm new to this level of quality, and it sounds like there are some even more amazing blends on this website.

  12. Delightful Taste 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Apr 2016

    I am not a wine drinker so the comparison of matcha to fine wines did not help me in deciding which matcha to purchase. I also don't drink coffee and am not familiar with the expresso drink. However, when I spoke with Eric I told him that I wanted something that had no bitterness and would still give me a lift. His suggestion was Matcha 97. This was the perfect choice for me! Although I probably should not, I add soymilk and honey to my matcha to begin the perfect day. Because it is pricey, (you get what you pay for) I also tried the Breakaway culinary matcha adding soymilk and honey. It was not the same. Even with adding soymilk and honey, I can tell the difference in the two matcha drinks. There is absolutely no bitterness in Matcha 97. At some point, I will work my way around to drinking Matcha 97 "straight" with no milk or honey, but until then I will continue to drink this elixir that makes my tummy and entire body feel great! After hearing the benefits of Matcha tea while watching Dr. Oz, I searched the Internet for information about it. Only one tea captured my interest. After reading the reviews and how it is cultivated, I was sold on Breakaway Matcha! My preference has always to purchase the best. I have spoken several times with Eric by telephone to get answers to my questions. He has always been very helpful and honest. I appreciate the excellent service!

  13. Wonderful product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2016

    This is as good as it gets. An uplifting and artfully crafted elixir. What a great gift to enjoy every day.

  14. New convert 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2016

    I am new to matcha and right off the bat I preferred the 97 to the 94. I can't put my finger on why, I just like the taste of this one. The effect is subtle. I find myself, having the energy to stand a little straighter as I go about day and it also has been allowing me to be productive and observant at the same time.

  15. It's all true 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Feb 2016

    For me, matcha has been an acquired taste. Then again, so was good wine. This 97 is smooth as silk. Even better than the taste is the high quality lift it provides, to ease me into my morning practice and off into the day...

  16. Smooth and tasty 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Jan 2016

    The 97 was excellent! I am not a matcha expert yet. But I know what tastes good and makes you feel good...and this sure does.

  17. Absolutely awesome! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Jan 2016

    I had never tried matcha before and thought I'd start off with the best ... and I was not disappointed! It is delicious, smooth and not at all bitter. I was skeptical of the 'heightened awareness' claims but not anymore. I know I was much more alert/aware without the typical caffeine jitters. Amazing. I purchased Breakaway Blend 97.

  18. SUBLIME! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2016

    Every one of the teas I have tried are superb! The customer service is wonderfully "off the charts" great, and the packaging and quick shipping are just added bonuses.
    The BEST!

  19. Excellent matcha! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jan 2016

    Really enjoying the blend 97. So smooth with wonderful umami. Ooooooo-mommy!

  20. I like your matcha! 5 Star Review

    Your matcha is awesome.
    I enjoy it whenever I make.
    Thank you Eric.
