Umami galore makes this remarkable tea taste sweet. Has a creaminess that almost tastes milky, and, when properly prepared, creates a crema not unlike a Guinness draft. Has a long, beautiful finish. Produces a very clean energy that leaves you feeling sated, your stomach feeling jubilant, and your brain feeling optimized. An incredible value for a really tasty matcha.

I've tried a couple of matcha that are sold online and by far this is the best! There are no bitterness in the taste, the flavor of matcha taste fresh, the color of the matcha is very vibrant grean and it's so easy to make!
Definitely purchase the bag instead of the jar! It's easier to get the matcha out of the bag. I'm definitely going to buy more once I ran out!

The past year I have tried many places for the best all around Matcha tea, and I finally think I found it! Along with the the taste, the customer service and even down to how they send and package the product, A++++++++. I have always tried to look for the cheapest Matcha on Amazon, and I finally realized that cheapest isn't always the best! Thanks Break-a-way Matcha!

I treat my morning cup of matcha as a ritual. It starts with the beautiful, fresh green color. But the taste is so delightfully unexpected - clean and refreshing, nit bitter at all, and I have a serious sweet tooth, so was concerned. This is a beautiful start to my days! Thank you Eric! Not only is the product amazing, the packaging was like recieving a wonderful gift! HIGHLY recommended

Thank you so much for the handwritten note! I just received my original coldbrew matcha and I'm completely blown away by the care you put into packaging everything.... and even more blown away by how it tastes. Even in this cold weather I can't help but give in and keep drinking by coldbrew. Everything from the aroma, to the crema, to the taste while drinking and the aftertaste is... ineffable. I've never had anything like this before. I hope that your company continues to flourish. I will definitely be a lifelong customer. I am going to order another coldbrew original for a close friend. This is simply too heavenly not to share.
Thanks again, Breakaway Matcha!

So convenient for rushed weekday mornings! Just add some good cold water in a mason jar and shake on the go. The taste is so clean and fresh, and the color is amazingly vibrant. Now I never miss my daily matcha!

Just got my Matcha and love the taste, packaging and literature that came with my order. I even call the home office and someone answered! So FAR A+++!

Even my kids like it. They don't drink it daily, and they mix it a little weaker than I do, but when they need to buckle down and and focus on several hours of homework, I like that they reach for this instead of soda, coffee, or worse.
I got a big bag this time - keep it tightly sealed in the back of my fridge. I keep about a week's worth in a smaller sealed container (also in the fridge), and refill as necessary. I actually think it tastes better from the big bag (as compared to when I bought a smaller bag).

I recently found out about Breakaway Matcha from a film editor, (and HUGE Breakaway Matcha fan - Kevin Fillipini, at Sunset Edit in LA) that I'm working with on a feature documentary project. Sometime the creative process can use a boost of clarity and energy with out the crash and jitters that can come with too much coffee. Kevin shared some of his breakaway coldbrew original with me, and I placed my own order within days. We just converted another one of our creative team, so we are all in the edit room -- match in hand. Love this product!

Far superior in color, flavor, and effect to anything else I've tried, even stuff with good reviews. I make a quart jar in the morning and drink till lunch time. Refreshing and energizing.

I'd never tried Matcha tea, other than some tea bags I bought at Costco. I kept them for about 2 yearsrs until I threw them away because I just didn't care for the taste. I figured I just didn't like Matcha. I wanted to because I heard it was healthy and better for me than the green tea I bought from the store, but I couldn't stomach it . . . Then I went to the Bulletproof Conference & sampled the ColdBrew Matcha from Breakaway Matcha. It was delicious & even more amazing, my husband liked it, too! I went home & ordered a year's supply and I've been enjoying it every day; I'm so glad to have found this company.
PS: Great customer service as well: very responsive!

Delicious, flavorful, smooth and inviting. This is a refreshing way to keep my matcha habit satisfied. I love the ease of mixing and enjoy the ability to take it wherever I go. Really a great sophisticated matcha!

Coldbrew matcha tastes refreshing and blends well. It is not bitter like matcha from other sellers. I've tried culinary grade, blend 97, and coldbrew original from Breakaway Matcha. My husband and I agree that Breakaway matcha is the best tasting we've had compared to major retail brands and even ones on Amazon

This is the only matcha I buy. It's perfect.

I order this regularly, and it is consistently wonderful. I drink it every day. Additionally, speed of delivery, and customer service is always great!

The original coldbrew now fills my morning commuter cup every day. Much lighter and more refreshing than coffee.

I love Breakaway's culinary matcha for baking and lattes- it is so fresh, green, and flavorful, not like that gray dust one finds in the supermarket. When I saw they had a cold brew I thought I'd just give it a try, not knowing what to expect. I've been drinking the cold brew matcha nearly every afternoon and love it! It is so refreshing on these hot summer days, and it really gives a boost without the jitters of coffee. I've also noticed it helps me to focus, so it is great before doing sports or concentrating on an important task.

Smooth, creamy, crisp, and clean. Way easier to prepare than coffee. Simply shake and go. For those who are used to coffee, just know that the caffeine won't jump out at you. You might wonder, is it working? Then when you run six miles on a treadmill, you'll know it is. I love the sustained energy, and I'm looking forward to not having coffee breath.

Eric had a tasting at the Stanford Williams Sonoma so I got to try the cold brew - A new way to enjoy matcha that I hadn't experienced! It really is refreshing. Like the other kinds I've tried, Breakaway's cold brew is noticeably different from any other provider's matcha, fresh and intensely flavorful - and this isn't even the top of the line of Eric's cold brews :)

Making Coldbrew is EASY. There are two main methods:
Method 1: Take a mason jar, water bottle, or any clean 16oz. jar/bottle with a cap, and fill it halfway with really icy water (we like to put a bunch of ice in a pitcher, fill it with filtered water, and let it get REALLY cold). Add 1 level teaspoon matcha, shake vigorously, and pour into glasses. Or just drink right from the jar.
Method 2: The "Blender Bottle." Simply fill it halfway with ice (with the blender ball/sieve thingy on the bottom), add a level teaspoon of matcha, fill with filtered water, and shake vigorously. That's it!
