Picture of Shin-cha Super Premium (Tokujo-can) (2020)

I was surprised, but also not, about this super premium shincha. You see, I know my tastes and I know that I've loved some "cheap" teas because even though they were inexpensive, they were great teas. I've also had some disappointing experiences with really expensive teas. So, I purchased this with that knowledge somew...

Soba-cha Buckwheat Tea

Style: Herbal Tea – Region: ?????
May. 11th, 2020

I used to love roasted barley tea, but I've since become gluten-free, and barley contains gluten, so I can no longer drink it. I decided to tack this onto an order from Maeda-en because I was hoping that it would be a good substitute.
