Tartary Buckwheat Tea 苦荞茶

 

Buckwheat tea, (also as soba tea), has been used for a very long time in China. Contrary to popular belief, buckwheat bears no relation to wheat; it is the seed of a fruit related to rhubarb. The buckwheat plant grows small white flowers and bright green leaves. The groats, or seeds, are used to make buckwheat tea.

it tastes rich and beefy, like coffee but without the bitterness.  Other people liken it to a nutty-flavored tea. In truth, it has many different flavor notes, rather like a wine, and you may end up focusing on other flavors than other people.almost everyone agrees that the scent of the tea is quite strong, but ultimately pleasing.

Yes :D just make sure the Chamomile tea has no caffeine since the coffee will.

 No I never had any but it sounds mighty tasty especially with people saying it tastes like coffee without the caffeine. Looks like something I will be checking out. Thanks ardilla  :beerchug:

Wait a tea thread!!!   I just bought a Chai Oolong Chai mate mix this weekend that is amazing. This tea is full powered LOL... the Mate has enough caffeine to reanimate a corpse... the taste is awesome too if you are into Chai which I am.

Update.: Just looked it up - don't think it'd be my cup of tea. rolleyes.gif


It is maybe the most popular tea in India. Just super dark red/orange, folks even put milk in it as it is really strong. I drank it for effect.


My favorite green tea you can get in LA is Kings Tea. it comes in a series of levels all different prices and qualities. Their more expensive green had been chosen due to the time the leaves were picked and the quality of ginseng added.

I use to do a lot of Indian Estate Teas (Black). And fresh grown Mint tea. Now Green is solid in the regular rotation with Red bush (S.African) coming in for relief. Variety, if you would. I'll have to look up King's Tea tonight or you can point.

I'm on an IPad so I still don't know how to copy web sites. They sell Kings Tea Oolong Number 103 over at amazon.com. I used to pay 16 bucks for a 300 gram box but they are asking 31.00. Still go on amazon and they have it. You can see what the box looks like. If you go deep into China Town sections you'll see walls of the brand. Some being maybe more than $199.00 for just 300 grams. But remember it not just green tea but ginseng and tea mixed.

You may likel it?

Hope you enjoy. A little different taste with the ginseng leaves and root.
