Rakuyou "Fallen Leaves"

Soba Cha • Nagano, Japan
$15.00 Regular price $18.00

Soba cha – roasted buckwheat – has the quintessential flavor of Autumn. Sugars in the buckwheat kernels caramelize as they are fired, creating a sweet cup with a roasty aroma, golden liquor, and nutty finish. Naturally free of caffeine, soba is known for supporting regulation of blood sugar levels and circulation, as well as good digestion. Enjoy it hot or cold with an Autumn harvest meal, and consider eating the spent kernels as well, for instance with a bowl of rice. We recommend brewing 5-7g of soba cha with hot water (around 200°F/95°C), allowing the kernels to brew for a minute or two.
