I had house guests from China last week and as usual they brought welcome gift of moon cakes and black buckwheat tea by Tiger. I never tried this tea before so I read about it on the web. It contains rutin which is a phytochemical which lowers LDL cholesterol. It also has 9.5gms of pro and 320mgs of Potassium and only 2 mgs of Sodium. This could be a great product for those trying to slim down or who have HTN or vascular disease. You drink the tea and eat the groats, so it is like breakfast in a cup. It has a very toast, nutty flavor. Reminds me of a piece of multigrain bread just out of the toaster or Maypo breakfast cereal (which I have not had since childhood). This might just be my new go to breakfast. You could steep it longer. I was just anxious to try it.
