Yume Tea

I tried Yume Tea when I visited Cream Dream in London. I loved the buckwheat tea and asked them if they sell the tea, but they didn’t. Meanwhile, the ones that are selling to Cream Dream have started their own business, selling buckwheat tea. You can get it from their website. I see that it’s now on offer, so worth taking advantage of this. I bought 2 packs, one for me and one I will give as a gift to a friend.

I rarely drink tea, as my favourite drink is black coffee. But I loved the buckwheat tea. It has a natural biscuit flavour, which is very interesting. As it is a tea, it’s also light, so its flavour is really interesting. I’m loving this tea.

The tea is made from the roasted seeds of the buckwheat plant. You can see the difference between the tea in the glass jar and the tea after it was brewed. Furthermore, it can be brewed up to three times. I did that and the taste is less intense, as imagined, but it works. I think I’m going to do that every time I will have this tea.

The name Yume means dream in Japanese. The company that sells this kind of tea was established by Olga. She has a successful business in Ukraine, selling premium teas. They are still operating in Ukraine, even after the full-scale invasion by russia. A few months ago they decided to expand to the British market with their bestseller tea – the buckwheat one. I think it was a good idea, as this is a rather unique product and, hopefully, it will be popular. I am going to buy this again and again because I love the flavour.

On their website they list the health benefits of drinking the buckwheat tea. As expected, tea is great, but, for me, the flavour is what sets this tea apart. I would suggest trying it, if you are in London and visit Cream Dream, or get a bag and try it at home. It brews in a few minutes. A bag has 100g and a teaspoon is needed for a brew, so about 5g, which means the bag should last for approximately 20 brews.

Have you ever heard of buckwheat tea?

  1. I’ve been curious ever since I saw your Instagram post about this. I’ve baked with buckwheat flour some, but never heard of buckwheat tea. It sounds very interesting.

    1. I never heard about it before going to Cream Dream either, but it was known in Ukraine. I love its biscuit flavour so much, it’s delicious.
