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.
Returning from 3 weeks in Japan was difficult enough, and running out of the matcha we brought home only added to the pain! We searched for about a month then finally found Breakaway Matcha. Heavenly. Thank you Eric for bringing it to us!
wonderful Matcha Lattes
I love making almond milk mathca lattes with the culinary matcha. It blends smooth and not gritty like some matchas you might find in cafes. I often roll homemade dark chocolate energy balls in this matcha giving them a green glow and a extra sophisticated flavor. A teaspoon in smoothie is also a wonderful way to get your matcha for the day.
excellent culinary blend
This is such a great value for culinary matcha of this quality. There is no trace of the requisite bitterness found in the typical blends at grocery stores. We will definitely purchase again.
beautiful matcha - great price
I bought this product knowing that my mom was planning on getting me some of the blend 93 as a birthday gift but being too impatient to wait to start drinking matcha! I did try to buy some in the local health food store, and it was terrible. Once I got home and tried it I read the packaging more and found it to have brown rice fillers and it was just kind of swampy. This culinary matcha is a million times better than that which claimed to be "ceremonial" grade. Now that I did get the serenity set as a gift (!!!!!) I have had so much fun making blueberry match muffins and raw matcha butter cups and can't wait to keep enjoying matcha in the kitchen. Thanks Eric for making this available!
by far the best quality culinary for price i have found.
A staple in my house
For the quality and price this will always be in my possession. Sometimes I even mix this in with some of the other fancy Matcha blends. Great for adding a vegan nut milk and some stevia or whatever you like to add, it tastes amazing. I always use the Aerolatte for optimal taste and experience.
So Far So Great!
I am enjoying my Matcha from Breakaway, although I am still not entirely sure how I am supposed to pronounce "Matcha". Anyway, the packaging is appropriate and sensible (I hate over packaging!), the color is dark and rich and, most importantly, the taste is wonderful. I take mine with (local) honey and Half & Half. Super tasty!
Very creamy and smooth100
