Hearty, toasty, and caffeine-free. This bag contains 150g of loose roasted buckwheat kernels for making sobacha, or buckwheat tea. To prepare, add 4-5 teaspoons to 250ml boiling water, leave for five minutes, and strain. As a caffeine-free variety, this tea is ideal for drinking late at night, or during the day when you are after a mild pick-me-up.

Buckwheat tea (or sobacha) is one of Japan's lesser-known teas. Made by infusing either buckwheat kernels or buckwheat leaves, it has a nutty, earthy taste similar to barley tea (or mugicha) but slightly sweeter and more mellow. Buckwheat tea is just one of the interesting and unique varieties of Japanese tea available at Japan Centre. Take a look at our Tea section to see what else is in store.

I drink it as tea. It’s a mild roasted flavour and great to drink in the evening. It doesn’t contain caffeine.
Good quality Buckwheat tea. A nice comforting roasted taste. Rare find.
