Tea is high in salicylates. Even when I could have tea (before I had the anaphylaxis), they caused me to be wide awake the whole night! Some even gave me migraines from the bowels of Hades.
So I did some research recently.
Buckwheat is negligible in salicylate. And one can make tea out of it.
|I washed 500gm of buckwheat groats and baked them at 180C for 1/2 hour. You can also bake them until golden brown.|
|I got a tea infuser.|
|Once they were cool, I poured them into a jar.|
|I placed about a teaspoon of the buckwheat groats into the infuser.|
|Then I dunked it into a cup of boiling water.|
|Voila! Buckwheat tea!|
|Alternatively, you could buy these tea bags and use them instead if you do not have an infuser.|
