Mmm, buckwheat. It looks like these little guys would be at home in a genmaicha. I can hardly resist chomping on a couple of these while I wait for my water to heat up! Crunchy!
I’ve never tried a tea of this type before. The smell as I brew it reminds me of cornbread or some kind of baked good. As others have mentioned, the flavor is oaty and bready, though not bitter. It’s kind of sweet, actually!
I don’t expect this to be a particular surprise or a wow, just a smooth, mellow, bready drink without caffeine. Good to maybe relax to, but not for focused drinking.
