If you're planning on using matcha as an ingredient--that is to say, you'll be baking with it or plan to add milk, sugar, or ingredients in smoothies, lattes, frappaccinos, etc., this is the matcha you want.
It's a robust matcha with excellent color, good umami, and imparts a very smooth "matcha" taste to dishes. It makes superb foamed milk drinks, and even makes a good matcha salt.
There really is no compelling reason to use a better quality sipping/savory matcha for these purposes; if you'll be applying oven or stovetop heat, or will be adding fat (milk) and sweetness to it, our culinary blend is the ideal matcha.

This is such a great value for culinary matcha of this quality. There is no trace of the requisite bitterness found in the typical blends at grocery stores. We will definitely purchase again.

I bought this product knowing that my mom was planning on getting me some of the blend 93 as a birthday gift but being too impatient to wait to start drinking matcha! I did try to buy some in the local health food store, and it was terrible. Once I got home and tried it I read the packaging more and found it to have brown rice fillers and it was just kind of swampy. This culinary matcha is a million times better than that which claimed to be "ceremonial" grade. Now that I did get the serenity set as a gift (!!!!!) I have had so much fun making blueberry match muffins and raw matcha butter cups and can't wait to keep enjoying matcha in the kitchen. Thanks Eric for making this available!

by far the best quality culinary for price i have found.

For the quality and price this will always be in my possession. Sometimes I even mix this in with some of the other fancy Matcha blends. Great for adding a vegan nut milk and some stevia or whatever you like to add, it tastes amazing. I always use the Aerolatte for optimal taste and experience.

I am enjoying my Matcha from Breakaway, although I am still not entirely sure how I am supposed to pronounce "Matcha". Anyway, the packaging is appropriate and sensible (I hate over packaging!), the color is dark and rich and, most importantly, the taste is wonderful.
I take mine with (local) honey and Half & Half.

What I liked most about Breakawaymatcha's website was its down to earthness and honesty. I decided to start my adventure with culinary matcha. I love it! I have shaken it with almond milk, cows milk, ice water. Hot, warm, cold, ice cold it's wonderful! I think I'll try a coldbrew next, it sounds wonderful.
Thank you Eric , with graditude

This matcha is great quality. It is better than the ceremonial grade matcha from a major retailer. Service from Eric was excellent.

I am pretty new to drinking matcha tea .... this is by far the very best I have tried!
One very satisfied repeat customer!!

This regular culinary matcha is way better then other brands who claim to have ceremonial grade, organic and the highest purity matcha. The color is a beautiful, bold green, tons of chlorophyll, slight bitterness(which I actually love) and good umami that comes through in hot or cold drinks or even in vegan matcha ice cream. This is my go to matcha out of the many ones I have tried from brekaway. I actually prefer the taste of this over the organic culinary matcha. The price is excellent for this level of quality.

I love high end matcha - just cannot afford to get it all the time. If you have ever tried a culinary matcha from some one else, it is usually drab, bitter, and chalky. From Breakaway it is WAY better. In fact, Breakaway's culinary matcha is better than many other seller's mid range whisking matcha. Bright green, has a nice slight bite, and actually tastes like matcha. This stuff is great iced. It is great with coconut milk in a matcha latte. We love it.

I would like to echo many of the things other reviewers have written about this product. I primarily drink matcha cold or sometimes in shakes and this is my favorite matcha to date. I drink 1-2 tbs of matcha a day so I feel like the higher quality matchas are out of my price range, but am now curious to try them when I feel like I have the money to splurge. I do find this froths very easily and is a pretty decent color. The flavor it more subtle and more delicate than other matchas I have tried especially compared to one in particular I bought from a well-known tea company which tasted bitter and was almost undrinkable.

I am a conifer of matcha and search high and low for quality matcha. I know I found it at Breakaway Matcha. The color, the flavor, is simply wonderful. Thank you Eric for your awesome product

i enjoy a cup of matcha every morning. i love the process of making it and enjoy the rich green color and robust taste.

In my search for Matcha I had purchased some at my local health food store. It was a greyish color and was fairly bitter. I am very pleased with my culinary grade Breakaway Matcha. The color is excellent and It has a very nice grassy flavor. I have found my Matcha. I look forward to my morning cup, every day.

I have had match a tea from many sources and I would have to say yours is among the best I have ever had. I drink match a tea every morning and look forward to my quiet mornings drinking tea. I am so grateful for discovering breakaway match a and will definitely order again as well as gladly advertise your product for you. Thanks again !

This matcha is quite lovely and I use it daily in a smoothie that I make for my husband and me. He doesn't like green tea, but the flavor of this matcha blends perfectly into any smoothie I have ever made, and he never notices that it's in there! Also when in the mood for a hot milky drink, this matcha is perfect with milk, dairy or almond or coconut. It will pat you on the back and make you feel like everything will be ok.
Question for Eric: The folks at Ippodo in NYC told me that something (don't recall what) in dairy milk inactivates much of the antioxidants (I think it was antioxidants, might have been something else) in matcha, so it's better to make it with almond milk, which doesn't have that effect. What do you know about that?

I drink matcha tea daily and have been searching
for good quality tea at a reasonable price. I have been disappointed by all of the matcha teas I have purchased online as none of them have the brilliant green color or flavor of a premium matcha. Breakaway's culinary matcha is an excellent find - gorgeous color, texture and flavor and the customer service and packaging are top notch too!

Let it be said that I am very "green" (pun intended), and completely new to this group of green tea'ers! So my scope is very limited with how to use the product, but I have tried the Coldbrew and the Culinary. I have tried the green tea latte that Eric suggested, and I think I prefer to drink it cold for the summer. I'll test again when Fall comes upon us. But as for first impressions, I love the customer service from a man and his company clear on the west coast, as well as the personal friendly note on each invoice. As I continue to discover the how to this green machine, I've already conquered the why through its amazing energetic properties and the people that stand behind its name. Life-long tea drinker here!

My husband went on a huge matcha kick after finding some green tea kit-kats in Epcot, so for his birthday I ordered some Breakaway Culinary Matcha and made a matcha birthday cake- it was a hit! He's also enjoying daily matcha lattes now, and we're looking up more recipes to try... so we'll probably be ordering some more soon!
