Ha, buckwheat tea. It tastes like buckwheat. Where are the noodles and onions? Maybe I will make some for dinner tomorrow night.

I am not entirely sure I can give a perfect review of this, as my brewing resources are rather low-tech (kettle, electric stove, mug). Amount is what is in the select package. I am sure my technique is poor.
Smells richly of a light coffee. Was not strong, but that is not a bad thing. To simplify the flavor profile, it tasted like a watered down coffee with nutty notes. It really did taste like a roasted grain/rice tea. I enjoy it, and think it would go well with a soup or rice dish or as a mild evening tea.
