SO GOOD. It’s toasted cereal breadness delicious tastiness. I added a little maple sugar, because why not.

Did you eat it?

OMGsrsly

Not yet! I should, right? AND eat some peanut butter, because all the notes talk about the delicious peanut-ness of it.

OK that was pretty good! Not 100% sure about the texture, but the flavour was nice. And also this tea is excellent with a spoonful of peanut butter on the side. :D

And they’re back. WHEW drama. Ok. Time to step away from the computer. Now that there’s peanut butter on the keyboard of course.

Is it similar to regular buckwheat ? I have some fr YS but still haven’t tried.

I _know-! It’s fucking delicious. Sometimes what I do is take the leftover buckwheat grains and have them with some yogurt for breakfast the following morning.

sounds delicious…

Intriguing! I had to go to the listing to see what this was all about. I don’t know if I have ever had a buckwheat tea before. I do like buckwheat though.

I have no idea if this is similar to other buckwheat teas. It’s just really really good! I went thread shopping today (yes, thread shopping, for hand sewing) and ended up at 3 different asian markets and none of them had sobacha. They had roasted corn tea, and roasted barley tea. I wasn’t curious enough to try the corn though.

This is basically just delicious toasted grains. Really toasty and warm and bread-like.

I mostly drink black tea, with some floral oolongs or puerhs thrown in for variety.

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
