Breakaway Culinary

(Write a Review)

If you're planning on using matcha as an ingredient--that is to say, you'll be baking with it or plan to add milk, sugar, or ingredients in smoothies, lattes, frappaccinos, etc., this is the matcha you want.

It's a robust matcha with excellent color, good umami, and imparts a very smooth "matcha" taste to dishes. It makes superb foamed milk drinks, and even makes a good matcha salt. 

There really is no compelling reason to use a better quality sipping/savory matcha for these purposes; if you'll be applying oven or stovetop heat, or will be adding fat (milk) and sweetness to it, our culinary blend is the ideal matcha.

    Outstanding Matcha

    Posted by Tina on Sep 3, 2018

    I am thrilled to have found Breakaway Matcha. I've been drinking the Breakaway Culinary in my daily matcha lattes for almost 6 months, and I love it! The flavor is so good. By far, the best matcha I've found!

    high quality

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 18, 2018

    This culinary grade is better than any of the commercial ceremonial grades I’ve seen and tried. Great with almond milk or in a smoothie.

    Coldbrew and Culinary Matcha

    Posted by Sara on Jul 8, 2018

    This is the only brand I’ve ever tried, and the only one I ever will try thanks to the amazing customer service and outstanding product of Eric Gower; his website is so simple to use and goes above and beyond to explain the differences and use. Thank you Eric!

    Breakaway Culinary

    Posted by Judy on Jun 12, 2018

    This was my first order with Breakaway Matcha, and I was so impressed with everything about it. This matcha is far superior in color and taste to what I had previously used (which I had thought was the highest quality). Eric’s experience, expertise and focus on matcha only really shows, and his customer care (along with Teal) is wonderful. I wish all online vendors had this level of excellence.

    Love this Culinary Matcha

    Posted by Lisa M. on May 1, 2018

    I had been a Teavana matcha drinker for years and then they closed and I had to find another source. One of the ways I enjoy matcha is in a really high quality almond milk as my drink for lunch at work.

    This culinary matcha is wonderful for that purpose! Smooth with a delicious taste! Perfect for an almond milk matcha midday.

    Morning Matcha latte

    Posted by Zigi on Apr 4, 2018

    Nourishing, uplifting and gentle—my matcha latte is the new morning ritual. Breakaway's culinary is my go-to. I make it with a nut milk. cashew or macadamia works really well.

    I love getting their beautiful & thoughtful packaging in the mail, like giving myself a present.

    They are proud of their products and know how to make you feel special—a winning combo!

    Great for Smoothies

    Posted by John Hollenberg on Jan 7, 2018

    I am not a fan of matcha hot tea. Tried the following blends: 94, 97, 99, 100 and didn't care for any of them.
    However, I do like matcha smoothies, which are quick to make and better than tea in hot weather. Here is my recipe:

    One cup soy milk
    Two medjool dates finely chopped
    One cup frozen organic blueberries (ones from Costco are great)
    1/2 teaspoon culinary match

    Blend in 32 ounce Vitamix container

    I used some of the blend 94 sample to compare to the culinary and couldn't tell a lot of difference, but perhaps the 94 is somewhat sweeter. Need to experiment more, but probably not worth the extra money for use in a smoothie.

    Best Matcha Available

    Posted by Meredith Dykstra on Dec 4, 2017

    Breakaway is by far the best quality matcha I've ever used or tasted. It's brilliant green color is gorgeous, and it's fresh, clean taste is better than another other matcha I've tried in recipes...and I've tried many! Incredible product.
