The Best Matcha on Earth?

 

Breakaway Matcha has to be the purveyor of some of the most delicious umami-rich Japanese matcha on the planet - no doubt about it. Love your high quality matcha tea? You are more than sorted, with a wide selection of hyper-premium blends, you cannot go wrong! My personal favourite is Blend 98 - it’s oh so good.

How about cold brew matcha? Sorted on that front too! Breakaway Matcha’s Cold Brew Reserve in particular is a show stopper, with Guiness-like cascading foam, and mouthfuls of mind-blowing umami, this is all I need to kickstart my day, and I just can’t get enough of it!

In fact, I love this green magic so much, I put together a little product shoot to show it off. Taking a break from the portrait shots, it was a nice change - although challenging. I’m not used to being confined to one space indoors with my camera… but I gave it a try anyway!

Tell me what you think of the shots below. I went with a dark-ish theme to match the beautiful black packaging and contrast the super green matcha powder and the Breakaway Matcha branding.

Blend Rikyu    “This tea, whipped up thick, seems to send memory into overdrive; into a contemplative state. We think Sen No Rikyu, the most masterful and original matcha connoisseur in Japan's very long history of tea, would have marvelled at its rich, umami-laden flavour, brilliant colour, and ridiculously long finish.    This is dreamy tea that tastes beautiful in any concentration, thick or thin, and sates like nothing else. From Ujitawara, Kyoto.”

Blend 98    “Crazy umami. Make it thick and enjoy the lustrous whorls and creamy -- yet light! -- texture, mouthfeel, and drawn-out finish. Taste reminds one of just-picked asparagus, though the aroma of the powder is of hyper-fresh cacao. Loaded with L-theanine that helps keep you focused and alert for hours. Another winner from our favourite matcha coop in Ujitawara, Kyoto.”
