I’ve been after some more Sobacha after Sil sent me a roasted buckwheat tea sachet last year and it charmed my mouth. I remember it was like drinking liquid peanut butter only light and tasty (since I’m not much of a PB fan). Then on Wednesday I won £5 off Whittington’s Tea Emporium thanks to a contest I had entered, however the voucher code gave me £5 off each tea and free shipping so I made off like a bandit. I got three Postcard Tea tins, one for Sobacha, one for Earl Grey and another for Green Mulberry tea. The total was only £6.75 and they arrived this morning. First call of action – drink Sobacha.
One teaspoon of mix into boiling water. Simple.
Now I have the buckwheat at the bottom of the cup which give it a pebble fish tank look and the liquid is light yellow. Yep there is is in scent, peanuts, roasted peanuts. It tastes gentle yet the after taste is strongly roasted with high wheat and nut flavours. It’s naturally sweet and somewhat buttery. Caffeine free, low fat, peanut butter on toast in a mug. Perfect.
By the way (non tea related) – I got into the swing of writing again so I wrote a poem, though it’s safe to say that I never got the hang of happy endings.
Ps – If you are easily upset then it’s best you don’t read it.
