From Yunomi

Chasandai’s sobacha is made from roasted buckwheat grains grown in Japan. The roasted nutty flavor is a favorite with Japanese, and commonly found in Japanese restaurants. Because it is caffeine-free, it is recommended to be drank at any time of the day. You can drink the tea, then use the steeped buckwheat as a topping on ice cream, an ingredient in your cookies, or add it when cooking rice! A wonderful tea to have especially in the autumn-winter months.

We went to a really good teppanyaki restaurant while we were in Taiwan – so good that we kept going back. The only problem is that it puts everything like it back home to shame. We’ve got hibachi places but they’re the standard fare. I love that, I grew up on it being the fancy “going out” meal for my family, but now I’ve had better and I want more of THAT. They served buckwheat tea with our meals. Tea-averse partner was super into it, so I bought him a couple of buckwheat teas from Yunomi to try out at home. What I really want to do is find out whether I can brew up the buckwheat that’s in my pantry cabinet, but that’s an experiment for another time!

So this tea! It is really hot right now, so I made a cold brew pitcher. It sat in the fridge for a few days because tea-averse partner kept drinking other things (insert eye-rolling emoji and crying emoji). Eventually I just started pouring mugs of it and putting them in front of him, mostly because I wanted to try it too! The great news is that this really can’t oversteep. It just gets deep, nutty, and roasty. Basically tastes like childhood. And really nice as an iced tea on a hot day. Partner approves too!
