I have had a huge bag of this sitting around for a while. It kinda got lost in the tea shuffle.
So for a while I have been trying to drink a lot of lemon-ginger water. Just basic glass of water with slice of lemon and slice of fresh ginger in it. It tastes good and I have a feeling it keeps me somewhat alive.
I decided to brew up some of this and try it I place of water with the lemon and ginger,
I used 6 tsp of buckwheat for 2 L of boiling water. I steeped for 5 ish, probably more like 7ish minutes. Then threw in the fridge. After it cooled I put it in my glass with my already kind of used lemon and ginger.
It actually tastes pretty good. The lemon and ginger are very subtle and it works really good with the roasted buckwheat flavour. It adds a but of depth and sweetness. I thinks it works well like this but I think if the lemon was stronger it would not work out so well.
Glad I rediscovered this one.
