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.

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

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 :)

This is my 2nd time to order and it's been great. This is a very good tasting matcha

This is my first Breakaway Matcha delivery, and I've never made cold brew before. I have a constant supply pre-mixed in my refrigerator, and it makes a perfect after-work, pre-dinner aperitif. I love the quick delivery and elegant packaging. 5 stars!

You know that gif where a little kid clenches his fist and smiles really big and is just so excited. That is how I feel about this matcha.
Detail Versions (for those interested):
I have always loved matcha but got away from it years ago but recently I stared searching for matcha over a month ago when I needed some type of pick me up to help getting back to work after my ankle surgery. I love coffee but it does not always love me, and i wanted to be only putting healthier things in my body since I am going to be recovering for a long time.
I looked at my local markets and started with the little matcha cans, easy go to for the morning. But I disliked have the extra sugar in them. So I went on a search and found a couple matcha brands. It was still a little cold out so I figured I would wait on the cold brew. I was a bit surprised by the prices on Breakaway, so I went with another brand that I could make cold if I wanted. It was terrible hot, nothing of what I love when I think of matcha. What a BIG MISTAKE that was.
I emailed Eric to ask about which he thought would be best to get and he was so delightful to correspond with. I got my matcha in the mail about a week ago and was wonderfully surprised to see the care in packaging, even the paper clip was cute. Of course I had to drop what I was doing and try a glass of cold brew. It was AMAZING, the powder was so light and airy, and it mixed with the cold water so easily. My husband who previously disliked matcha said it was leagues above my previous brand and then continued to take a few extra sips.
I normally do not write reviews but I am a strong believer that these day you should give props to those who are hard working, helpful, and a delight to deal with. Thank you Eric for finding such delicious matcha, cannot wait to try different styles.

I've been drinking Blend 94 for a few months now. With the weather changing, I decided to try the Cold Brew Reserve and I LOVE it! So easy to make, smooth umami, no bitterness. Just delightful!

This coldbrew matcha is delicious! Perfect for studying on hot summer days. I've given some to my extremely picky boyfriend and even he likes it and finds his focus is increased. Highly recommend! Also, customer service is amazing. Love this company.

Best cold brew matcha paired with amazing customer service!

This stuff is addictive! I really love the original coldbrew matcha! Even in the winter, I sometimes drink it to get my day going. As described, it has no bitterness. I drink it plain and sometimes with a sprinkle of honey crystals added to it. I gives me a feeling of freshness, energy and clarity. It's not this big out-of-body experience, but a subtle feeling that makes me feel really good! I tried the coldbrew reserve and found that I prefer the taste of the original coldbrew. Try it, I am sure you will love it! BTW---Eric Gower is the best!

I've tried pretty much all the top rated matcha offered on Amazon or around NYC (eg: chalait or panatea) and breakaway really wins this one!! I've so far only tried the 99 (delicious and smooth, no bitterness) and the cold brew (also amazing).

Smooth. Rich. Wonderful! Great with just icy-cold water or with a splash of milk, too, as a chilly latte.

I have never been a tea drinker, in fact I would normally tell you that I hate tea...this tea has changed my mind! I decided to try it for the health benefits and I have not been disappointed! I suffer from what many of us moms call "baby brain", not only has this tea helped me with energy, but it made me feel like I could concentrate again and actually remember something for more than two seconds!! It's very mild tasting and I enjoying blending it with ice cold water and a whole banana!

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!
