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).
