The perfect entry-level hyperpremium matcha; that is, it's got lovely umami, has a vibrant, emerald color, has little bitterness or astringency, and has a nice, long finish that leaves a sweet and delicious aftertaste in the mouth (and also makes the breath fresh and sweet).
Tastes like a combination of barely-cooked green beans, baby summer squash, and oceanic brine, all steeped in an earthy mellowness.
A tremendous value at this price.

From Uji, Kyoto, Japan.
Breakaway Matcha was founded on the idea that great matcha should be much easier to find than it actually is. It took a good decade to pull it off. We opened our doors in 2010, and have deepened our offerings each year.
Founder Eric Gower developed what might be called an obsession with extreme-grade matcha during his 16 years living and working in Japan as an author, editor, private chef, and cooking teacher.
Eric's deep dive into matcha eventually led to close relationships with the people who cultivate and process Japan's most extraordinary matcha, and worked with them to custom blend and create matcha with the five tell-tale signs of great matcha: maximum umami, electric color, intoxicating aroma, dreamy frothability (achieved through traditional granite grinding mills), and a long, stunning finish.
