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 and your stomach feeling jubilant. An incredible value for a really tasty matcha.

I started drinking Breakway Coldbrew Original Matcha about 2 months ago. It is very smooth. I don't have to add any stevia or honey for sweetness. Excellent flavor. Great service & fast delivery, & bonus of no shipping charges.

I love the premium matcha for my mornings and the coldbrew matcha for the afternoons. Truly delicious.

I just tried Breakaway matcha tea at our local store last month & fell in love with it & ordered it from Breakaway.The travel packs are great & handy when we travel. Breakaway coldbrew is so smooth, I make it every morning. After doing some research into matcha tea, all is not alike. I found that others brands have brown rice powder & fillers in them. Breakaway is pure Matcha. The only brand I will buy & its great when special prices are offered by Eric.

Not so much of a green tea drinker UNTIL NOW.
Breakaway Matcha is surprisingly refreshing in a clean sort of way and I now make it a regular choice in my go to beverages.
I normally drink sweeter teas but have gotten to like the Matcha unsweetened.
The shaker is perfect, both attractive and functional.

The entire experience at Breakaway Matcha was exquisite -- the storeowner's experience and passion for the drink is infectious, and his generosity of spirit was impressive!

Matcha has been a favorite of mine for a couple of years now. Super refreshing, healthy, and a great alternative to water or coffee (the only other things I drink).
It's easy to make, easy to store, and very easy to drink!

I was not much of a Matcha drinker but once I tried it cold with Breakway's coldbrew I genuinely enjoyed it for the first time!! What a great quality product.

Usually I drink my matcha hot, and the 94 blend is my go to choice for an afternoon pick me up. With the heat of the LA summer, I decided to give Coldbrew a try and I'm certainly glad I did! It's simple to make - add recommended amount, less or more to personal taste, with appropriate quantity of cold water in a covered jar or bottle, shake vigorously and enjoy! Use a clear receptacle as the grassy, green color and the froth on top add to the overall experience. Very refreshing.

This Breakaway Matcha Cold-Brew Original is so easy to make and so refreshing! This matcha is sweet without any bitter linger.
I add the powder to a bottle of icy water, cap and shake...that's it! I love the froth that forms and it holds throughout the entire time I sip or gulp. This matcha yields a very creamy brew.
For a special treat in hot weather, I shake the bottle for a few minutes and put it in the freezer. While in the freezer, I shake every 20 minutes or so until I achieve a matcha slush in my bottle...Oh, MY! This is the best summer drink I can imagine!
I thank Eric at Breakaway Matcha for making this matcha available to his customers!

I love this stuff - it is so creamy and delicious. Someone below said that it tastes like drinking life, and they are right.
I ordered the big bag almost immediately after getting my first jar - can't run out!

Super vibrant. I shake a mason jar filled 2/3 of the way with ice and water until it's icy cold, then add 1.5 to 2 teaspoons of matcha because I like my drinks a little strong. The froth is beautiful, the taste is sweet and rich. I found that while I like drinking sweeter teas and milk teas, I did not think sugar did anything to enhance the flavor of the tea and I like to drink it without. Personally, I found the taste to be <i>almost</i> reminiscent of pennywort juice--vaguely grassy and refreshing. I love to drink cold versus hot, so the coldbrew was definitely a hit with me.

This coldbrew is rich. I love it each day.

I drink at least one glass a day of the Matcha Cold Brew. I find it gives me a boost and clarity of mind without the buzz. As a photographer this is especially helpful when going on a shoot or sitting in front of the computer editing photos! Love the tea!

Delicious and super simple way to change up my tea habit.
Posted by Kevin Willock on 15th Jun 2015
I received a sample of this in a quarterly box, and normally I'm not a fan of Matcha, but after trying this cold brew, it made me a convert, so I immediately ordered the big bag. There were some issues with checking out in my country, and Eric was amazing with his customer service, resolving it in under 24 hours. I'll be a lifelong customer.

I have been enjoying various high quality teas for years. Most recently Pu-erh.
Then, a friend introduced me to the Breakaway "coldbrew" matcha. Perfect to take to work in a thermos - and supremely refreshing. It has become my new staple.

I received Breakaway Matcha in a Quarterly pack, so I had no prior exposure to the Breakaway brand. I love the feeling of drinking this vs. my morning (and afternoon) coffee. I introduced it to my wife and we are rationing out our supplies until our replacement batch comes along. My wife wife describes it as "drinking life", this coming from a Colombian household where coffee is served all day, every day. Finally, I've been incredibly pleased and impressed with the quality of service Eric and team provides. Highly recommended!

This is one of the best matchas I have tasted in awhile. I bought the coldbrew matcha. This is great to drink right in the morning if you are not a big coffee drinker. Will order again !

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!
