Bestest sobacha

The aroma and flavor of this sobacha is better than any sobacha I've had before. Concentrated nutty taste and beautiful aroma.

Soba Cha

Excellent stuff, a unique, comforting non-caffeinated tea that isn't "lavender chamomile peppermint deepy sleepy night time herbal tea". Chamomile is great, but I needed something different. Tastes clean palate almost like the aftertaste of crisp sake and has a wonderful warm caramel flavor that isn't cloying. Those that are suspicious who I have served this are instantly fans. Would recommend.

About Nagano Soba Cha | 長野そば茶

Description: All Soba Cha is not created equal. While grown in several locations in Japan, Nagano and Hokkaido are both widely lauded as the De Facto producers of high-grade buckwheat. Our Soba Cha comes from Nagano Prefecture, more specifically the Togakushi region. Cool-weather, access to fresh spring water, and optimal soil make Togakushi the central area for producing high- grade soba.

What is so special about this tea? Soba cha, while not actually tea as it does not come from the Camellia Sinensis plant, is the roasted grains of Tartary Buckwheat, a cousin to the common form of buckwheat found in most kitchen pantries. This specific form of buckwheat was domesticated in east Asia and continues to be prevalent in China, Tibet, South Korea and Japan. A unique difference of Tartary Buckwheat is its size - you'll notice the grains are smaller and do not contain as thick a husk. Another notable difference is what lies within the grain: a nearly 100 fold amount of the chemical Rutin - a powerful chemical "known for its potential biological effects, such as reducing post-thrombotic syndrome, venous insufficiency, or endothelial dysfunction"

Recommended for: Your new favorite daily drinker - no caffeine and plenty of flavor.
