Roasted toasty rice flavor. Nutty and interesting. This tea was polarizing with my guests though and people either loved it or hated it.

Soba cha (roasted buckwheat berries) is a caffeine free tisane drank in noodle shops in Japan. With an intoxicating aroma and slightly sweet, nutty brew, this is sure to become a favorite. GLUTEN FREE!

This reminds me a lot of drinking the toasted rice part of Genmaicha. It’s got that yummy roasty-toasty flavor of the genmaicha toasted rice, but it has a tasty malty note to it too. Like Barley … the flavor reminds me of a freshly baked loaf of multi-grain bread.
Sweet with notes of honey and nut and caramel. It tastes very breakfast-y, like a piece of toasted multi-grain bread with a pat of melted butter and a drizzle of honey.
Good afternoon Steepster!
Ugh, I have been out on disability for almost 3 months and I got back to the office today, working part time until June. I don’t know why but sitting at my desk is causing me some incredible pain. I am definitely more comfortable at my desk at home but they won’t let me work at home. I think because here I have a drafting table and a drafting chair and it seems more comfortable than being all scrunched up at a short desk.
Anyhoo, I got two Steepster select boxes while I was gone and decided to open them both up today. I don’t know if I’ve ever had a buckwheat tisane before. This smells really good, very nutty and bready. The flavor is nice and sweet. I am getting a grainy sweetness and even though this is a dark roast, it doesn’t taste like something that’s been dark roasted. I like this fairly well but maybe not enough to actually run out and buy any. It’s nice that I survived my day but I wonder if anyone around me noticed how I was so whiny and grumpy. Harumph!
A lovely, warming, soothing evening tea. This tisane has a robust nutty flavor that reminds me strongly of genmai cha. I was not expecting a deep flavor profile because the tea itself was so light, but I very much enjoyed the full-bodied cup. I felt nourished and calmed after enjoying this tea, and it is the first tea from Select that I am seeking out to purchase. 9/10, will drink again.
Ahhhh… Good. I love this right now. The roasted barley taste is really yummy. I saw some reviews on how it tastes like honey smackers and thought yeah! That’s it! I’m happy this was the first tea I tried from the free steepster select box I got. Don’t know if I can afford to keep the subscription going but if I like the other tea samples as much, I think I’m in trouble :)
I got an offer for a free month of Steepster Select, so I broke down and got it. This was in the March box which I received.
It’s really interesting, I can see why it was noted as being a common companion to ramen. It’s a tisane, not tea, so it doesn’t check that internal box, but it’s likable, and I will definitely brew the second pouch.
Very foodish. It’s like drinking breakfast.
