Chilled Green Tea Noodle (Cha Soba)

Posted November 20th, 2008 in Food No Comments »


Tonight I had Green Tea Soba Noodle (cha-soba) for dinner.

This green tea soba noodle contains Uji Maccha Tea (Uji = name of an area in Kyoto) and I could smell and taste Maccha Tea really!  Yum 🙂

Usually, when people use tea for cooking, they use Sen-cha (another Japanese tea) to avoid its strong flavor overwhelming other food.  However, Green Tea Noodle consists Maccha because people want this distinct flavor and color to be appeared.

This product is quite expensive but can be purchased at Asian supermarket.  To enjoy its flavor, I’d just eat it with seaweeds and simple dipping sauce.


With Rose wine 🙂
