Ten Beautiful Ways to Gift Matcha this Holiday Season (plus Stocking Stuffers!)




You love Breakaway Matcha, it’s the holidays, and you have a gift list a mile long -- your next step seems obvious, but in case you're stuck, here are ten suggestions to help you along the way to a relaxed and bountiful holiday season!



1

Give the same gift to everyone 

It may sound odd, but giving a variation of the same thing to everyone on your list is a fun (and efficient) way to manage your holiday stress. Select a beautiful handmade tumbler and pair it with a delicious jar of matcha, customizing your choices for each person.



2

Keep it simple...

...with our pre-assembled Selected Sets. With each of our sets, we’ve gathered together everything needed for an optimal Breakaway Matcha experience:

  • The Coldbrew Bundle has everything needed to enjoy the wonders of coldbrew matcha; 100g of the Coldbrew blend of your choice, our large black-violet glass jar for matcha storage, a Coldbrew shaker bottle, a bamboo matcha scoop, and our custom designed tea towel.
  • The Matcha Flight Kit is a pack of 4-gram jars in the four Hyperpremium blends of your choice, a matcha tea tool kit and our gorgeous Ypres tumbler, for an immersive Hyperpremium experience.
  • The Serenity Set consists of a 30g jar of the Breakaway Matcha blend of your choice and all the tools needed for making a perfect cup, plus our custom designed tea towel.

Bump it up a notch

Add a  tumbler to our Serenity Set, combine a 250g bag of Culinary matcha with our Extra Large Glass Storage Jar, or give the best of everything Breakaway Matcha has to offer  - a jar of our exquisite Blend Daphne, a handmade Standhardt tumbler in red or white, a custom tool kit with an Aerolatte frother, the sumptuous Sabun Kubo scoop, and an elegant Komakai Hammered Sieve. Add a locally made linen tea towel by Studio Patro, and you'll create the ultimate matcha experience.



4

Tea for two

For the happy couple! Choose two tumblers that pair well together (such as Fayt Honey and Fayt Grooved), one of our delicious blends, and a tool kit.



5

The complete Breakaway Matcha experience

Invite your loved one over for a cup of matcha and send them home with their own  Serenity Set. Or turn them on to the bliss that is Coldbrew matcha with a Coldbrew Bundle.



6

Matcha and the great outdoors

Take your giftee on a special hike, or perhaps a kayak ride or sail on the bay, or maybe even just a picnic in the park. Include Coldbrew as the refreshing beverage of choice and give them a Coldbrew Bundle of their very own when your adventure is over.



7

Enhance a holiday gathering

Invite your friends over for a holiday meal and place a jar of one of our blends at each place setting as a gift. Pair the featured matcha with a decadent chocolate treat as one of the courses of your special dinner.



8

Matcha and cookies

B ake your favorite holiday cookies - we recommend classic snowballs, benne (sesame) wafers or brownies. Pack them up in a beautiful tin and include a jar of matcha to go with them.



9

Say it with chocolate (and matcha!)

Make Eric’s Matcha Truffles by the dozens, package them up in clear cellophane bags and tie with a red ribbon to keep with the classic red and green theme. Hand them out to everyone you know!



10

For the cook

Bundle together Breakaway Culinary matcha (or Culinary Organic!), a Studiopatro linen tea towel, and an elegant Komakai Hammered Sieve to finish it off.





Stocking stuffers:

  • Purchase a flight (four 4-gram jars) and slip one jar into the toe of each of your loved one's stockings. Make it extra special and include a bamboo scoop.
