    Thoughts from a newbie

    Posted by Ingrid on Jun 16, 2018

    (I am completely new to matcha. I ordered a flight of Blends 97, 99, 100, and Daphne to try them out; so these are the impressions of someone with no previous matcha experience. I gave them all 5 stars, because they're all good; my preferences come down to personal taste, I think.)

    Now that that's out of the way...

    Of the four, my impressions of 99 changed the most between the first and second try (as I got used to the taste of matcha in general, I think). It reminds me, variously, of raw green beans fresh out of the garden, or grilled vegetables at a summer picnic. There's a vegetal sweetness throughout, and a satisfying savoriness that makes me think, weirdly, of potatoes. (Maybe that's umami? I still don't have a good handle on what umami actually *is.*) There's also a very faint hint of something like mint - so faint I don't mind it even though I strongly dislike mint. It's just a tiny thread of coolness.

    The finish is mostly more of the same and lingers for a long time.

    The fresh-alive-green taste is more lively than Blend 97, but not as vibrant as 100.

    Blend 99

    Posted by Kathy Kelly on Apr 21, 2018

    I recently ordered Blend 99 after trying it in a flight. I had tried jt a couple of years ago but opted for another blend at that time. SO glad I gave it another try because I absolutely love the taste, color, and consistency. It is a quality blend through and through!

    I rate Blend 99 a ten out of ten, as good as it gets.

    I took Match with me on a solo retreat Nov. 22 and 23. I had forgotten how Matcha relaxes, and sharpens a person mental acuity all at the same time. Thanks!

    My Favorite!

    Posted by Elizabeth on Oct 28, 2017

    People at work say I'm obsessed with Matcha. Well I came by it honestly when I got to know Breakaway Matcha. Their obsession is contagious! I really love all the blends I've tried so far - 93, 95, 97, 99 - but 99 is my favorite - that and Cold Brew Reserve! (Also Cold Brew Original is quite good.) Matcha is now a part of my life and Breakaway is my favorite!

    99 is smooth and tasty

    Posted by Mary Handley on Jul 22, 2017

    I enjoyed 99 very much. It is very pure, and tasty. I don't think it needs any sweetner like honey or sugar. I drink it plain.

    Morning "Green Espresso"

    Posted by Lynda Cole on Mar 5, 2017

    Breakaway blend 99 is how I start my mornings. I like the ceremony and the feel of the small warm cup in my hand. Drinking it gives me a moment to think about the coming day and a gentle lift that lasts for hours.

    Life changing

    Posted by Julie Fluegel on Feb 2, 2017

    WOW! I've tried several kinds of Matcha, I'm not an expert but there is definitely a difference and you get what you pay for. This is the most expensive Matcha I've tried. With that being said it's well worth it. So smooth with no bitterness. It's absolutely exquisite. You won't be disappointed. This will be my go to Matcha. I can't wait to try some of the others.

    This is my first taste of premium matcha. No bitterness whatsoever. I love making lattes, but my favorite way to drink this is hot and thick. Eyes-rolling-back-in-your-head-humming good! Asparagus and cream.
