It’s not just tea
It is also a ray of sunlight. When brewed with warm water, it presents a golden tea, exuding the aroma of roasted grains.
Grown in a Selenium-Rich Geological Belt: Selenium is an essential trace element for the human body. The human body cannot synthesize selenium on its own; it primarily comes from the soil and can be obtained through plants. The selenium content in plants is related to the soil in which they grow. For the same type of food, the selenium content can vary by more than ten times in different selenium-rich soils.
Black buckwheat contains 3 to 5 times the amount of the flavonoid rutin compared to common buckwheat. By using supercritical carbon dioxide extraction, the content of flavonoids in buckwheat can be increased to over 70%. The low-temperature, circulatory extraction process takes 1 to 5 hours, preserving the bioactive substances in flavonoids to the maximum extent.
