A tea made from beans? Yes, indeed this is a fragrant and rich black soybean tea from the Morita Beans in Hokkaido prefecture. Similar to how tea and wine tastes differently across regions beans also taste different depending on the land where it was grown (terroir). Black soybean tea is just like that. Clearly, the tea is influenced by multiple factors such as the region where the beans were grown as well as their quality.
This black soybean tea was made from selected black beans from the Morita Beans farm (the video below depicts the life of an Azuki bean in 2 minutes). Similar to coffee, they medium-deep roasted the beans which gave them a high aroma. This tea can be enjoyed by all! That is, it does not have caffeine, and does not have any bitter taste. Please drink hot or cold, moreover, one can even eat the steamed beans afterwards!
