100% Japan (Hokkaido) grown, pesticide-free dattan sobacha (Tartary buckwheat tea)!
Sobacha tea is roasted buckwheat tea. This specific sobacha is made from dattan soba 韃靼蕎麦 (tartary buckwheat, also known as bitter buckwheat) grown in Shibetsu city of Hokkaido and contains 100 times the amount of rutin (1500mg / 100g) compared to common buckwheat. Roasty flavor of sobacha is caffeine-free and is recommended to be drank at any time of the day. It can be used as your salad topping!
Compared to the Aomori-grown Dattan Sobacha, the Hokkaido sobacha has a much stronger buckwheat flavor with hints of roasted nuts, and is softer in texture (if you plan to eat it).
- Ingredients: Tartary buckwheat (Roasted)
- Region: Hokkaido
Put about 1 tablespoon (7-10 grams) of sobacha into a cup. Pour boiling water into the cup and wait for 1-2 minutes and the tea is ready. Try eating the soba. It will taste like cereal!
The Hokkaido grown sobacha has a nuanced, grain like flavor with gentle sweetness and a very light toasty note. For a more toasty flavor, try the Aomori grown sobacha.
