Super excited to receive this in a swap from Sil.
My granparents are farmers, so growing up I would often eat raw/whole wheat, barley, buckwheat, etc. To this day I love chewing on raw, fresh grains. Hello (natural) carbs!
This tea smells and tastes like heavy bread or pretzels. Definitely a buckwheat taste. I actually ate the buckwheat after it was steeped. So good. The tea is also slightly sweet on its own which is nice.
I have been looking for wheat/barley teas like mugicha and soba cha at asian/international grocery stores. Haven’t found what I am looking for just yet. Although I am sure I could call up my grandpa and source it for free…
