A feisty, gorgeous matcha that's ready to slap you with its attitude.
Racy. Fantastic color, heady aromas, intense "matcha" taste (think strong green tea ice cream), faint twinges of bitterness (which gives it its sass).
Plenty of umami and natural sweetness means it pairs beautifully with food, especially sweets. Makes the world's best matcha salt.
If Breakaway Blend 100 is a great Burgundy along the lines of Romanee-Conti, and Breakaway Blends 99 and 97 are coveted, cult Napa cabernets, Breakaway Blend 94 is more like a "vintner's reserve" from a top producer: a beautiful epicurean experience and phenomenal value that soars above similarly priced matcha. Has verve and power, like a zen wake-up stick.

HOW TO MAKE
I loved this matcha. It seemed stronger than the Blend 93. But I am still learning. I have also had the cold brew which I loved. I will probably try the organic next. This one had a kick to it. A spiciness, I am not sure how to describe. I might like a more subtle matcha. What is fun is trying different matchas and combinations, I enjoy adding ND milk occasionally and seeing how that changes the taste/experience. I like different matchas and combinations on different days depending on my mood and what my body is asking for.
I am relatively new to matcha and I am thrilled to have Breakaway as my guide. I have tried both a culinary grade and a number of hyperpremium grades and none have disappointed. Blend 94 is so far my favorite with its rich and creamy taste. I look forward for returning for more 94 and to experimenting with others. Thank you Breakaway!
Smooth, rich a perfect way to start the day.with something special.
I've been drinking Matcha for several years and always had a difficult time finding good quality at any price. I have tried several of the Breakaway blends so far. The 94 is perfect for me. The flavor is nice and rich, the color is amazing green, and the price is in my budget to have two cups of it everyday. Thanks Breakaway!
The color is a bright intense green but the aroma is a wonderful roasted nutty one. The taste? Creamy, sweet, floral. Then came the doubt about ever being able to go back to any other matcha ... I am now spoiled for life.
I am new to matcha so ordered a sample of 4 different blends. this was by far my favorite. Smooth flavor without bitterness.
This is what I ordered for my daily morning matcha. It has a fresh flavor and a vibrant green color. Great alone or with a tiny hit of coconut cream.
In my journey into matcha tea, I've tried a handful of Breakaway Matcha's blends and along with the 95 blend, find this one to be exceptionally pleasing. I had to sip it alongside another matcha I had to see what they meant by "slap you in the face". It has a lingering almost puckery taste. I like it. I was apprehensive at first because I thought perhaps it would be overpowering, but it's quite pleasant. I'd enjoy purchasing this again.
I have yet to meet a Breakaway Matcha tea that I didn't absolutely love, but the 94 is definitely a must-have for me. Especially if you haven't yet tried Breakaway and feel that the price is too high, start here. You'll immediately see, feel, taste the difference compared to other matcha out there.
