Aomori Sobacha

100% Japan grown, pesticide-free dattan sobacha (Tartary buckwheat tea)

韃靼そば茶 青森県 十和田産


This roasted flavour sobacha is caffeine-free and so suitable to be drunk at any time of the day. It can also be used as a salad topping!

Sobacha tea is roasted buckwheat tea. This specific sobacha is made from dattan soba 韃靼蕎麦 (tartary buckwheat, also known as bitter buckwheat) grown in the Towada City of Aomori Prefecture and contains 100 times the amount of rutin (1500mg / 100g) compared to common buckwheat.

Aomori-grown sobacha is roasted slightly longer than others bringing out a creamy flavour and aroma...almost like peanut butter.

The best Sobacha I’ve been able to find when shopping from the U.K. Absolutely delicious, almost creamy in flavour.

Thank you so much for the review!


I love this tea so much! It transforms with each brew. So amazing.
