Tartary buckwheat tea, also known as soba tea, is not related to normal wheat. Unlike wheat, it's related to the grass family of plants. While it's consumed for hundreds of years in China and other countries in Asia such as Japan, Korea, and Singapore. However, it's yet to be discovered in the West.

Origin Of Tartary Buckwheat Tea

Our special type of buckwheat tea (also known as 'soba tea' and 'green buckwheat') is from Daliangshan, hidden in the famous Hengduan Mountains that can be considered the world's Mecca of this herbal tea type. This mountain area is situated 2000 to 3000 meters above sea level with a cold climate, fertile soil and sunshine all year round. These ideal environmental conditions results in a superior grade tartary buckwheat.

The Health Benefits of Tartary Buckwheat Tea

Even though black tartary buckwheat has an amazing taste, most people only discover this when they buy it for the health benefits.

Besides containing several mineral and vitamin B, buckwheat is famous for its rutin content that is also present in citrus fruits, berries and asparagus. Rutin helps against high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), and can even help prevent against different types of cancer. Buckwheat is known to reduce the risk of diabetes. A recent publication in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry also suggests that soba tea may also be useful in managing diabetes.

Tartary buckwheat also contains choline, which is a vitamin B type that improves your metabolism and decreases cholesterol and blood pressure levels. This is why tea made from this low calorie herb is often part of a healthy diet.

First Time Trying This
This is my first time trying any Buckwheat/soba tea. It is so much better than I thought it would be! This tea has a very nutty and sweet earthy flavor. The smell is very pleasant as well. I steeped this tea for four minutes. On the second brew I steeped it for four minutes and twenty seconds. Even on the second brew I can still taste the almost honey/grainy flavor. I am very impressed with this tea! It also has no caffeine, so this might be my new evening tea. Review by Nicolette (Posted on 5/2/2015)
