From Lupicia

Good-quality sobacha using aromatic soba(buckwheat) grains from Azumino, Shinshu.

Use 2.5-3 grams of tea and steep for 2-2.5 minutes in boiling water.

I opened this up for lunch today. I love the nutty but fresh smell coming from the bag. There were super small almost kirara rice like seeds. They are round and remind me of tiny chickpeas. These were mixed in with bright green stems, which resemble kukicha. MAN, I really miss kukicha! I need to make an order for that as soon as I’ve finished a few more teas. mMMm… This one was nice and light. It is different. I like the nutty and toasty flavor and it is light as well. Delicious! This isn’t bitter at all.

The roasted quality of this sobacha is distinctly present but enjoyable.

The green tea base is a very well chosen complement to the soba grains. I only get a hint of that sencha flavor I despise in the aftertaste. And really, even then, it’s so subtle that it adds to the enjoyment of the soba.

The dry tea blend smells like a houjicha. However, the brewed tea has a heavy roasted aroma that’s more like genmaicha than houjicha.

The color of the tea is very light, much lighter than I expected. But it does have a green tea base, so I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. I wish I had written more about what the genmaicha I’ve tried tasted like so I could compare it better.

Overall, this probably isn’t a tea I’d drink all the time. But it’d be fun to have every now and then to shake things up. It is a very distinctive, unique tea.
