Buckwheat is widely used for drinking purposes - in Japan it is called soba-cha; in Korea it is known as memil-cha; in China it's named kuqiao-cha; and in Russia, grechka-chai. Buckwheat tisane is considered to be cool in temperature in traditional Chinese medicine and has been used for its health benefits, such as clearing the spleen and kidneys. At present, clinical studies have been conducted on buckwheat to determine: antioxidant, vitamin and mineral content; benefits to the cardiovascular and circulatory system; diabetic control; anti-inflammatory properties; impact on feminine health (in particular PCOS); and benefits of hydration. Once the infusion has been drunk the remaining buckwheat kernels may be consumed as a cooked cereal/seed such as quinoa, amaranth, barley, oat groats etc. Buckwheat tisane may be drunk hot or cold at any time of the day and may be enjoyed before a meal to aid digestion or during or after exercise for increased hydration.
