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.

Terrific taste. Great customer service and ownership
This matcha is wonderful!! So sweet, so subtle, so good....the only problem is that now any other matcha I have at home (purchased before) tastes just so so... I wonder how other Breakaway matchas are. My doubt is which one should I try next...but I'm sure Breakaway matcha will be my only option from now on
I dared to venture up the ladder of matcha tastings in an effort to understand why some matchas are considered upscale and unique. To my surprise, Blend 100 is in an entirely different league. In fact, Blend 100 has an incredible attribute that sets it above others. I call that attribute the experience of enlightenment. Smooth, savory, sweet, delicate, fragrant, creamy,colorful, vibrant, and Nirvana.
Matcha Blend 100
Very smooth taste, not bitter at all. Tastes milky to me. Very very good.
If you want to commune with the matcha gods with every single cup, go with the 100
I have tried about a dozen different "Ceremonial Grade" Matcha brands and finally have gotten into what I think is the finest! Breakaway blend 100 is fabulous. Can't wait to try the next two above this blend.
Amazing Matcha - And Service!
Breakaway Matcha is the best matcha I've ever tried. It has amazing taste, color, and texture. And the customer service is just as exceptional as the matcha itself.
Love the product!!!
Everything was perfect! The packaging, the directions, the tea, the tools to make the tea, just simply perfect!
