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
This matcha is so delicious... smooth and in no way bitter. It is a very special afternoon pick-me-up and tastes better than anything you can get at the supermarket!
I’m fairly new to matcha, but I have to say the difference in taste between the Breakaway Matcha Blend 93 and the other matcha brands I have tried is truly night and day. This blend is so smooth and pleasant to drink - none of the bitterness I’ve often experienced with other matchas. I also really love the glass container provided for storage. I’ll definitely be reordering!
I bought this beginner matcha for my mother . She now enjoys her matcha latte every morning as a soothing tasty start to the day. The alkaline bright green quality is so good for her cancer diagnosis too !
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.
