These Trader Joe’s soba noodles are new for 2021, and are a great addition to the growing number of matcha green tea products at TJs. Soba essentially means buckwheat in Japanese, and Trader Joe’s has successfully combined the subtle earthy taste of matcha green tea with these soba noodles made from wheat and buckwheat flour. The flavors of these noodles are definitely subtle, but if you cook them al dente, they have a great chewiness to them. You can eat them cold of course tossed in a salad, or put them in hot soups or other protein dishes. These Trader Joe’s matcha green tea noodles are a definite winner in my book, especially for under $3…….…….

Trader Joe’s Matcha Almond Milk review
One thought on “Trader Joe’s Soba Noodles, Matcha Green Tea Japanese Noodles”
These are ok but I was really disappointed in the actual ingredients versus the advertising (which kept talking about buckwheat soba noodles). These are primarily wheat flour. The matcha is so subtle that I don’t think it’s worth adding this much wheat, unless you aren’t trying to get plant protein (only 7 grams in a serving here).
I’d recommend getting either chickpea spaghetti or real soba (buckwheat) noodles, and adding matcha powder to the cooking water.
Also, these are very fragile and get gummy quickly so as the label says, serve immediately and don’t expect saving for leftovers will have the same quality as freshly cooked.
