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. "Everyday" matcha 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Mar 2015

    Let's face it-if I could afford it, I'd drink the Blend SE or Blend 100 everyday! But I can't...the Blend 97, however, hits the sweet spot between flavor and cost, and right now I think I'll go make a cup.

  2. 97 is my go to 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Mar 2015

    97 is my go to for drinking pure matcha with no additions. Delightful taste

  3. Wonderful Tea 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2015

    I'm a first time matcha drinker and I'm so glad I started with Breakaway because there is no need to try another brand. The tea is really delicious and smooth. I look forward to my daily cup. Can't wait to upgrade to the 99 and 100. I plan to purchase the coldbrew packets to have when I travel.

  4. So smooth and no aftertaste. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Feb 2015

    Just had my first cup of Matcha today and it was a very pleasing experience. Smooth and rich. I have never had a green tea with taste other than a cardboardy unpleasantness. The Matcha 97 was completely different and I look forward to the realization of the relief of fatigue and stress.

  5. Amazing! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Dec 2014

    I received the 97 Blend and upon first sip…WOW! I can't imagine what the 99 and 100 taste like! This is my go to hot matcha blend…that is until I try the 99 and 100. I love it! It's a must try!

  6. Green Goodness 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Nov 2014

    This was my first Matcha try. I'm so pleased my first experience was great. I won't order with anyone else. Breakaway Matcha has great customer service and delicious Matcha. After reading reviews I opted for 97. Beautiful smooth taste!

  7. Love breakaway blend 97 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd Sep 2014

    The color, sweetness, and flavor of this blend is perfect for my morning drink. I have not tried the other blends but this one is very good. I will stick to Breakaway Matcha for its high quality and service. Thank you.

  8. Perfection in a cup! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jul 2014

    It's possible I have developed an (un)healthy obsession with matcha tea and have tried many different matchas from other suppliers. Breakaway Matcha is by far the absolute best in terms of texture, flavor, and overall service. I LOVE the 97 and 99 blends (still need to try the 94 and 100 blends). They're so smooth and flavorful with no bitterness that I've found with so many of the other brands. I could drink cup after cup after cup after cup and never tire of it. I also have to comment on the excellent customer service. Each package is wrapped up so nicely in their vibrant green paper and shipped immediately, with a personal note on the invoice. Hard to come by personalized service anymore and makes for such a nice touch!

  9. love my Matcha! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2014

    I did not know there was a difference in matcha until I tried yours. What an education your website is. I am currently using my Breville milk frothier to get the cream on the top and it is a wonderful thing. I work all 3 shifts in one month and take it to work for my 1 am lunch time treat. I am well pleased.

  10. a bowl a day keeps,, 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Jun 2014

    I have been enjoying a bowl (matcha wan) of blend 97 in the morning for sometime now. It is smooth, creamy, and fragrant with just enough bitter edge, a perfect bowl/cup to start a day.
    I tried many other matcha both here and in Japan, before settling to this blend. The quality of the tea easily match that of teas I could buy in Japan. It is easy to order it online, and as I live in the Bay Area it usually arrives within a day or two.

  11. super focused green energy! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Apr 2014

    I dove into the matcha experience based on all the health benefits. I was a little wary of adding caffeine back into my life since I have had sleep problems for years. The mild caffeinated effect of the matcha has not affected my sleep negatively and keeps my brain hyper focused!
    The taste is mild and smooth and I look forward to my morning ritual of frothing up the beautiful green color.
    I highly recommend this!

  12. Obsessed 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Feb 2014

    I drink A LOT of matcha! I have tried all of the Breakaway Matcha blends and have become obsessed with blends 97 and 99. Blends 97 and 99 are so grassy, clean, sweet and creamy. Blend 94 is beautiful as well and less expensive making it great for everyday drinking.
    I love Breakaway Matcha so much that when I wasn't home for my last shipment I tried to track down my mailman for 15 minutes because I didn't want to wait until the next day to pick it up. Turns out I had to wait, which made the first cup even more relished :)

  13. Surprisingly Good Matcha 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jan 2014

    Good matcha is hard to come by in the United States, so I was pleasant surprised by Blend 97. While not as grassy as blends I've had elsewhere, it is sweet and smooth.

  14. O matcha, how I love you 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2013

    I wanted a nice matcha to make at home and started exploring online. I don't know what it was about Breakaway that caught my attention, but I am SO glad I ordered this blend.

    Delicious, earthy, smooth, and fun to make. Definitely a new addiction.

  15. Mild and marvelous! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Oct 2013

    The 97 is my go-to everyday matcha. I make it hot with frothed coconut or almond milk, sometimes even coconut oil. It's sweet and smooth. There's no bite to this. It also melds well with vanilla and chai spices

  16. New to Matcha 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Oct 2013

    I was looking forward to trying Matcha after hearing Eric interviewed about it on a naturalnews.com radio show with Dr. Mitch. After reading the website I decided on Blend 97. I also ordered the tools recom'd to prepare the Matcha. Well, at first I was disappointed in the taste of Blend 97 as I expected a sweetness as described on the site which just wasn't there for my Western taste buds. I wrote Eric about it and he was very gracious and said to return it and he would refund but I held on to it. After talking with a colleague she said Matcha is not suppose to be sugary sweet but somewhat on the bitter side. I prepared some for her and she loved it. She said it had such a clean green smooth taste and was the best she ever had. She liked the color too. Well, I thought maybe it's an acquired taste and decided to keep it and give it another chance. I'm still not crazy about the taste but I don't mind it and have been drinking it especially because of the health benefits. I'll continue to drink what I have left and share with my co-worker but I don't see myself ordering it again though I am more than happy to tell others about Eric's website. I would definitely say it is an acquired taste not bad though. It is clean tasting no film on the tongue or after taste makes your breath smell nice too!

  17. Wow...just WOW!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Sep 2013

    I've tried the Blend 94 and love it. The Blend 97, however, is an entirely different experience. There is no trace of bitterness and there was a pleasant sweetness that lingered in my mouth for a good 10 minutes after I finished my matcha. I will definitely be putting this on my Christmas list.

  18. Best I've tried 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2013

    This is the best matcha I've had. Before I would have one cup of matcha first thing in the morning. Now I'm often tempted to have a second one later in the morning.

  19. A good value 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2013

    I think the 97 blend is the best value. Its taste is well above store-bought quality and with the 100g bag it is reasonably priced.

  20. Deliciously Smooth 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2013

    I am so glad I was able to find this Matcha, I previously would order another famous brand directly from Japan. This is equally as good if not better. It is a part of my morning ritual and am so glad that I tried it. It is smooth, no bitterness, and the most beautifully vibrant color green you could imagine. I am excited to try all the other varieties.
