If you're even a casual fan of Japanese cuisine, you'll immediately recognize the word "soba" in the name of the Honjien Dattan Sobacha Tea. It means buckwheat and refers to one of the grains that are used extensively in Japan, especially in the making of one of its most characteristic noodles. In this case, buckwheat is used as a beverage (the "cha" in its name means "tea") and comes in a 50-teabag pack. At 5 g (0.02 oz) each, the whole pack is 250 g (8.8 oz) of pure buckwheat tea.
Why would you want 250 g (8.8 oz) of pure Japanese buckwheat tea, grown in Hokkaido, Niigata, Nagano, or Oita prefectures? First of all because it doesn't contain any caffeine, which means anyone can enjoy it at any time. Second of all, because it's also gluten-free, so won't mess with any disorders you might have. And third, because it has 130 times the amount of rutin found in regular green tea and rutin is a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory substance! So what you are getting with the Honjien Dattan Sobacha Tea is health in a teabag – 50 times over!
