The perfect entry-level hyperpremium matcha; that is, it's got lovely umami, has a vibrant, emerald color, has very little bitterness or astringency, and has a nice, long finish that leaves a sweet and delicious aftertaste in the mouth (and also makes the breath fresh and sweet).
Tastes like a combination of barely-cooked asparagus, baby summer squash, and oceanic brine, all steeped in an earthy mellowness.
A tremendous value at this price. From Uji, Kyoto, Japan.
HOW TO MAKE
Not new to the matcha world, but this was my first trip into the "hyperpremium" level. This was great. Had a wonderful aroma, mouth feel, and flavor. I look forward to a cup every day. It is more expensive than the culinary-grade matcha I had previously been having, but to me, it's worth it.
Green goodness. Refreshingly smooth with sweet greens after taste.
It's a delicious way to wake up. No bitterness, a complex, slightly toasty-seaweed flavor. So so superior to the matcha available in my local specialty tea shop.
Very new to the Matcha world and have been exploring some culinaries and some ceremonials. I have found the Blend 93 is my first choice....great color, taste, no bitterness.
I had been a Teavana matcha drinker for a few years. I made the decision mostly because of price. I'd been pouring over the Breakaway site for a long time but always decided no, thinking I couldn't afford it. But Teavana went under and then what was I to do?
I talked with Eric about what he'd recommend and he gave me a 10% off coupon for a sale that was going on. I got a 100 gram bag of this and the culinary matcha which came out to what I had been spending at Teavana - less even!
Blend 93 is yummy. Better than Teavana's and with hints of better matcha to come. Nice mouthfeel afterwards for quite a long time. I will save up to try the other blends. Lovely intro to Breakaway Blends. Thanks for all your help, Eric!
Very nice, as advertised...blends well, smoothies, cooking etc.
The description of this Matcha is exactly what it is. I love the sweet after taste. My only complaint was how difficult it was to transfer to the container. A lot was wasted from pouring it from the package to the jar.
I love it so much! It's a special treat for me, I cherish every sip .
We're experts on all things website development but ignorant of anything Matcha. So this was our first foray into this delicious world and we wanted to buy from the best purveyor on the web. Well, we were not disappointed and look forward to trying more of the excellent blends in the future.
