Cha means tea and Soba means buckwheat in Japanese. These are buckwheat noodles flavored with tea.
The tea used to flavor and color these noodles is Matcha. Sometimes you’ll also see these noodles referred to Matcha Soba or Green Tea Soba.
Matcha is my favorite green tea, I love love it. So when I saw these noodles I had to buy them.
The easiest way to prepare Cha Soba is to first boil the noodles, drain and rinse with cold water. Serve cool with some soba dipping sauce. Alternatively they can also be used in soups, stir fries or any way you would like. I made this into a warming quick soup. Cook them as previously mentioned, prepare a small pack of instant miso soup and drop the noodles in. Simple and delicious.
