Buckwheat Tea Sobacha
Sóbacha in Japanese means "soba" - buckwheat and "cha" - tea. It is not a traditional tea, like green or black tea, but a tizan, a gluten-free and caffeine-free tea made from the seeds of Tatar buckwheat.
There are many varieties of buckwheat - some of which we use as a staple food, while others are used to make noodles, cookies, bread and tea. In Japan it is also used as a topping in salads, ice cream, yogurt, etc.
Our buckwheat tea is grown in Hokkaido, Japan, without the use of agricultural chemicals. Tartar buckwheat seeds are milled, mixed with water, extruded, dehydrated, dried and finally roasted after harvesting. No sweeteners, flavorings or artificial ingredients are used.
One of the most important elements in Soba is rutin, 100 times more than in the usual buckwheat. And in our case we use a special roasting method to preserve it.
Also, roasting gives the seeds a honeyed, nutty and oatty flavor, with a natural sweetness in flavor when you brew them with hot water.
Buckwheat tea is becoming increasingly popular around the world because of its high nutritional effectiveness and chemical composition in the prevention and treatment of various diseases. For example, in Chinese medicine the benefits of buckwheat grains have been known for a long time, they are used to prevent hypertension, hypoglycemia, etc.
