Similar body and texture to Breakaway Blend 99, color is wildly vibrant. Mouth entry is wondrous and seamless. The tea is sweet, with no trace of bitterness (this is rare in the matcha world). Clean and harmonious. It's surreally good, better than anything we've ever tasted with the exception of the 99 and 100. The crema is rich, thick, and delightful. If you've never tasted the 99 or 100, you would swear that matcha couldn't possibly get any tastier. A fantastic bargain given the quality. From Ogura, Uji (Kyoto),Japan's oldest and most distinguished matcha appellation.

Like a fine Sunrise
Blend 97 is an experience everyone should have. In my opinion the flavor is astonishing. There is no bitterness and great for the daily matcha cup. Silky and creamy while hinting at its earthy tones buried in sweetness and layers of energy and light. A fascinating matcha that is reminiscent of a fine sunrise.
green and yummy
I love the blend 97, it is my go to matcha. The beauty of this matcha is it's wonderful flavor and the fact that after drinking, I have enough energy to get all my work done for the day. Life is just better with blend 97.
This matcha is delicious. It has no bitterness, has great color, consistency, and sweet flavor. Breakaway provides great quality and customer service.
I have been drinking matcha for a few years from other purveyors. Since discovering Breakaway Matcha, I have no reason to try another again. I started with the 93 blend, then moved on to 95 but I have to say that I like blend 97 the best so far. So smooth, no bitterness, just delicious!
Now THIS is matcha!
I discovered matcha green tea a few years ago and thought I was getting top quality stuff when I bought my matcha from Teavana. Though theirs is a good matcha that is reasonably priced, I didn't know any better and I eventually wondered if this was really the best matcha. I did some research and found breakaway matcha and haven't looked back since! The 94 blend is the same price as the matcha I used to buy religiously yet I know the 94 matcha would still be superior even with the similar price tag! As for blend 97, I love to get this blend during breakaway's awesome 20% off sales. If you're a matcha fanatic like me, breakaway is hands down the best there is!
New to Matcha
This is the first Matcha I have tried. I will say it took a couple of days to get used to the taste. I found how important not boiling the water is and how it effects the taste. I started with 97 and will most likely try different ones just to compare. I'm giving it 5 stars on how I feel. It gives me energy, made me feel focused, helped control my appetite, and gives your body a "cleanse". I don't feel I need to try other brands when I'm extremely happy with Breakaway Matcha.
The best matcha I've bought so far. I've tried other organic brands on Amazon and in health stores, none was as good as this one. No bitterness at all. Great energy.
Like a fine wine
4 stars only because Breakaway claims they have even better ones that I haven't tried yet. Amazingly fresh and delicious, a revelation of what the best matcha can be. There really is a difference!
