Our Review
Takashimaya was the best tea shop in New York for many years. They did a great job with teas from Japan and around the world (which we supplied.) One of Brigitte Harney's favorite drinks was Soba, so when we found a good source, we bought it.

Liquor The liquor of this herbal is a light yellow.

Blast to the past
Average Review:

Remember Honey Smacks Cereal? This tastes and smells a lot like it (as thus I recommend a touch of honey). The Harney review is spot on.

Hard to rate this tea relative to other traditional teas (white, green, oolong, black) - it is not really an herbal either. We have a buckwheat festival in the area which is a pretty big deal, so I thought I would give soba a shot just for fun. Soba is unique to other teas; this is the first I've had it, and was pleasantly surprised. Great on cool days.

It's Okay
Average Review:

When I first got a 4 oz tin of this I opened it and was hit with a smell I wasn't very fond of. I put it away for awhile and finally decided to brew it. It's pretty good, sweeter than I thought it would be, along with bold nutty notes. Not for me, but if you like nutty tea, try it out.

so glad I tried it
Average Review:

this "tea" is wonderful. It is nutty with a somewhat substantial mouth-feel and it is the perfect thing for the evening. I am so, so glad that I tried this tisane, now my most favorite non-caffinated thing to drink.
