Enjoy the nutty, toasty, and roastly Tartary Buckwheat. The Loose Tea Experience: For true tea lovers, nothing compares to the experience of the aroma and flavor of loose leaf tea. Since these leaves aren’t constrained by a pre-measured steeping bag, your palate is your guide to full-flavored enjoyment. And making the perfect cup of tea starts with a quality filtered or spring water. Gives natural energy and clears mind. Releases the toxins in all organs and mostly strengthens the stomach. Great for dieting! Try it raw as a healthy alternative snack.

The dry aroma of this tea was very nutty. I just dumped the sample in my Bonjour glass tea press and poured near boiling water (approx. 8 oz) over the tea for 1 min. Could smell nuttiness of wet buckwheat, but when I stuck my face in the press and inhaed the aroma it smelled like ashes! I thought of an astray and ashes. Could someone tell me why I kept inhaling the wet ash aroma? Why?….several times….why? I think initially I was in sensory disbelief!

The color of the brew was a medium, translucent yellow, similar to that of Chamomile. The cup had a nutty aroma, and the one minute steep led to a hearty, nutty, naturally sweet flavor. The nutty sweetness was delicious! So clean and refreshing. The second steep was better at 1.5 minutes, showcasing a slightly nuttier and sweeter flavor. The third and final steep at 3 min. was still very good, even though the nutty sweetness had dissipated somewhat. This tea was never bitter, which is a plus for me.

Definitely a very nice tea experience (minus the ashiness of the wet aroma). I would order, as this is a great, relaxing brew before my nightly slumber.

Thank you Anna! :))

Blended some Tartary Buckwheat tea with my high mountain oolong since I wanted a roasted flavor in my tea. Yummmm….
