From Moychay

«Kuqiaocha» is a popular drink made from roasted seeds of buckwheat (Fagopyrum tataricum), which is drunk like a regular tea. Buckwheat tea is an important part of a healthy diet: it contains rutin, vitamins B2 and PP, E (alpha-tocopherol), as well as magnesium and potassium, which are extremely beneficial for the heart and nervous system.

In appearance: small golden brown grains. The fragrance is intense, pastry-biscuit. The liquor is transparent, with golden-yellowish hue.

The ready-made drink has rich, pastry aroma. The taste is soft, oily, sweetish, with nutty and biscuit notes.

Steep grains in a hot water (80-95°С) in a gaiwan or teapot. The proportion is 5-8 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 10-20 seconds; then, gradually increasing the exposure, you can steep another 5 times. Perfectly suited for “one-off” brewing in a teapot or thermos. After brewing, the pips can be eaten directly or by adding to the salad.
