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 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.

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 !

Wonderful. I work 14 hour days and something about having my lovely glass tumbler of vibrant green matcha is so comforting. On that note, the ease of making it is essential to being able to form a habit when I'm waking up at 5 in the morning. Coffee upsets my stomach (and I hate the taste), and so this makes a perfect caffeine boost. I've tried other matchas that taste powdery, dull, and frankly, vile. This one is so fresh, bright and smooth.

I like to use part coconut water in mine to give it just a touch of sweetness. Perfect

I am extremely impressed with my cold brew matcha! It arrived on my doorstep neatly packed, complete with an instruction & information booklet as well as a receipt of purchase and a handwritten note from Eric. The matcha itself tasted amazing- fresh and decadent. I will definitely be buying all of my matcha from Breakaway Matcha from now on!

This cold brew blend is perfect for popping in my blender bottle and running out the door. It dissolves well and gives me that extra boost I need!

I first ordered the 30 gram size and was very pleased that it arrived in a quality storage tin, with an outside lid plus an inner lid. This seemed to me a sign of a quality product and a company that cares about its image.
Product dissolves easily in cold liquid, provides a lot of energy, good flavor.
So for my second order I purchased the 100 gram size, expecting the same quality I originally received. Sadly, the 100 gram size was shipped to me in a ziploc bag - no storage tin. I'm spending more money and getting 3 times the product, buying from the same company and yet my loyalty is rewarded with a lower quality delivered product than the original lesser expensive product I purchased. The fact that the packaging is of such lower quality, for me, says a lot about the company - they reel you in with high quality packaging the first time and then deliver bargain basement packaging on the second order - I don't think my loyalty will remain with this company - I'll search for something that will be delivered with consistent quality from shipment to shipment.

I will never drink coffee again now that I have discovered cold brew matcha. Period.

Matcha has virtually banished all stress from my life. Incredible stuff.

We are a new market for Matcha tea and it's been flying off our shelves. Word of mouth has drawn customers in just for the Matcha!

I absolutely love Breakaway Matcha. I use it every morning in my vanilla protein smoothie. I'm not a coffee drinker so this has been a great way to get some energy not to mention all of the other health benefits of matcha.
I'm getting ready to place my second order!

Breakaway coldbrew matcha is such a refreshing alternative to coffee or hot tea when you need re-energized during your work day. Too much caffeine can give me the jitters, but this coldbrew always keeps my head clear and focused.

Received the Coldbrew as a gift from my sister for Christmas. Loved it so much I had to order more! The tea is smooth and refreshing. Gives a nice boost of energy without the jitters. Awesome product and I'll be ordering more!

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!
