The first thing you notice is the creamy body and smooth mouthfeel that resembles a perfectly pulled espresso. The color is hallucinogenic bright green. It has sweet aromas redolent of fresh young grass, young bamboo, raw sugar, and chlorophyll. It has the ethereal vegetal notes of just-picked asparagus and sweet peas on the vine, balanced by earthier, umami-laden undertones of perfectly grilled mushrooms. Mid-palate shows "essence of fresh," a real floral lift, and layers of meaty richness.
The catechin-rich, subtly astringent treble notes on the finish bear remarkable similarity to those of a great Burgundy. The finish is long; it keeps delivering these sweet flavors long after it's swallowed. Turns all previous expectations and experience with matcha on its head--it earns a perfect 100 score.
Origin: Nishio, Aichi Prefecture (near Nagoya), Japan. Elevated growing region, very pristine environment, incredible terroir. One of the rarest, and most delightful, epicurean experiences in the world.

I'm relatively new to Matcha, but I've tried several brands so I feel I can tell what's good and what's not. I'm so glad I stumbled upon Breakaway Matcha! I was hesitant because yes it's pricey. You won't be disappointed. This is unlike anything I've tried. It's amazing, it's exceptional...its life changing! Once you've experienced it there is no going back to what you've had in the past. I'm in love. Thank you!
Zenfully Rich and Full of Depth
Matcha has been a part of my morning meditation ritual and one of the best additions to my practice is Blend 100. A koicha of this is delightfully creamy and smooth blend has no bitterness. The fresh grassy aroma transports me back to quiet, unhurried, and lazy summer afternoon. Simply Nirvana.
I Feel Like Bradley Cooper in Limitless
I feel like I've discovered some sort of magical elixir....this is perhaps the best drink in the world for body, mind and soul. Never before have I had so much energy or experienced so many creative thoughts or felt so alive! Completely addicted.
creamy like a latte
Provides a lot of energy and is just the right amount of natural sweetness
Blend 100 is my favorite way to start each day...and my favorite way to regroup in the late afternoon. It is pure, sweet, smooth umami with no sharp edges to pay attention to. It is like floating on a green umami cloud.
This matcha goes to 11!!
Indescribable experience. Lemony floral tsunami of divine goodness. You will not regret spending more to try this. A 4g jar in a flight is simply not enough. There's a reason for the extra price hike between the 99 and 100. Blows my mind with every sip, and it seems the more I drink of this matcha, the better it gets. Must try!!!
The BEST matcha that money can buy!
We have tried everything on the market and nothing compares. Breakaway Matcha makes life better.
another delicious breakaway matcha product!
I'm so impressed by this artisan matcha company. After having sampled several I went for the Blend Rikyu as a splurge and my introduction along with the small bamboo spoon, fine mesh and aero. When it was gone I purchased the Blend 100. Both are creamy, bright green, finely tuned and such a treat every morning. My focus has become greater and the energy is easily assimilated. Great customer service and follow up. 5 stars!
