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.
