My youngest daughter recently traveled across the country to begin her next great adventure and is now settled and happily adjusting to her freshman year at college. A few days after "the drop", she called to say everything was fine and that the only thing she really missed was her morning Breakaway Matcha (and the dogs.) I immediately ordered a Serenity Kit to be delivered. A few days later, I received a heartwarming photo from her of her Breakaway tea towel placed atop her desk with all the accessories to create the perfect cup of goodness. She was delighted and grateful -- as was I. Eric even included, in the happy package, a handwritten note (per my request) that said "Stay cozy and green. Love, mom"

After quite a bit of research online about matcha, I came across this website. I was hesitant to try matcha since I had a bad experience tasting a sports drink with matcha as part of the ingredients. Since I was aware of the health benefits I decided to try the #97 matcha included in the Serenity Kit. It took a few times to get familiar with the taste and fragrance. Now I enjoy the experience of drinking it and calming myself during the process. I wish it were less expensive but I trust the matcha is some of the best available online. The company is very responsive, the packaging is lovely, and it's a treat to receive my orders.

We bought this for a friend and we were in awe at how nicely everything was wrapped and cared for by Eric, head honcho of Breakaway Matcha. The time and effort of the wrapping is simply an extension of the quality products he offers. I look forward to my friend becoming a matcha addict as I am, now that she has this great set to start her off on the right foot.

First time trying matcha of any kind. I decided to spend a little more and order the serenity kit from breakaway. I am definitely glad that I did! The breakaway 100 is amazing. Tastes great, it's extremely healthy, and gives you a nice even flow of energy/calmness that lasts quite a while. I will be reordering the breakaway 100 every month! Thanks for providing a great product.
P.S. The sieve, frother, and scoop that came with the serenity kit are great as well. I think it's worth it to get the frother as it really gives that great Crema. The scoop is also nice because it has a much more natural feeling than other instruments typically used. And the sieve really does make a difference as far as the matcha not clumping up.
So if your on the fence about ordering, do it! You won't regret it.

My Priest recently brought me communion to my home and while visiting with me asked me if I knew anything about Matcha. I had heard of it, but didn't know much about it. He asked me if I could research it a little for him and let him know my thoughts on it. So I did.
After all the research, I thought maybe I should try this stuff too! So I recently ordered two Serenity Kits with Blend 99. After reading all the reviews about Breakaway Matcha, Eric and Blend 99, I had to try this myself too!
The kits arrived quickly - within two business days. They were wrapped in the shipping with beautiful bright green tissue paper, and as described, in tea towel (which I LOVE). Everything was exactly as described in the description of the product kit. There were some samples of the Coldbrew Matcha which I can't wait to try and some excellent instructions and nutrition information as well as an invoice with a very nice handwritten note from Eric. Where can you get that kind of service today??
Father and I each opened our kits and made our first cup of Matcha. We are both raw vegetable juice drinkers, so we immediately loved the taste and smell of the Matcha. What truly surprised me was how amazing I felt before I was even done drinking the full cup. I felt alive for the first time in years. I have many health issues and do not remember the last time I felt this alive and energized. The focus and mental clarity I had by the time I left the Rectory to go home was, well, I don't even know how to describe it. This tea is AMAZING!
Father was also blown away by the quality of the tea and how well it made him feel. By the time I left, he was saying he was also feeling better. A few hours later he called to thank me again and said he was still feeling great from the one cup of Matcha. Later that evening, he sent me a text saying he still felt amazing and thanked me again.
All this from ONE cup of Matcha folks!

The tools in this kit make the preparation of the matcha tea easier and more enjoyable. I really like the frother and it makes a great foam. Haven't tried the salt yet but have tasted it and it's wonderful.

This set makes an excellent gift. It's obvious that Eric is passionate about the products he offers, and he takes a lot of care to do it right.

I started drinking matcha after a recommendation from Leo Babauta. I just can't explain how good you feel when you drink it, and the note from Eric is something very nice.

Very glad to have the real thing, along with a manageable way to make it. The tea tastes great, the tools are fun to use, and I'm now also addicted to the salt! Enlightening all around.

The Serenity Set was perfect for me. The cloth that wrapped it is now covering an endtable. No waste. I forgot to ask Eric about how to use the matcha salt-so far I put it in some dal and it was yummy. I can't wait to share some tea and the aerolatte/scoop with my meditation book group. There was definitely a learning curve for me. I found using one cup for everything worked better than two since pouring off the froth into another cup left much of it behind. I also think adding the health benefits to the card that came with it would be great. Going back to Green Tea from a bag now would be lame-o, for sure. Best of all I can have a cup when I come home from work and still get to sleep. No jitters and a great feeling of well-being. I had been looking for a healthier coffee substitute and I don't like Teecino. Great find- will share, wish we could all afford. I plan to drink less carryout coffee to offset the cost. All except my most mindful diehard foodie friends here in the midwest probably wouldn't put this much resource into their fuel-but they probably should! Customer service so far tops-looking forward to my next order.

Got this set from my Dad before I had ever tried Matcha. Have to admit I was a tad skeptical since I'm a dark coffee guy, but I eventually gave it a shot -- and I'm glad I did. The Matcha really does make you feel great. And don't be intimidated by all the tools and such -- it's easy to whip up a cup in a matter of minutes. Makes for a great change-up for that usual cup of coffee.

I purchased several Serenity Sets for members of my sales team. They loved them--not only the tea, but the process, aesthetics, packaging, the whole deal!
