drank Roasted Barley by Wang Globalnet
33 tasting notes

This is just roasted barley, but I’ve never had it before, despite living next to a Korean grocery store. I was in the store today looking for an herbal tea to drink. So I bought some roasted barley to try it. I brewed it on the stove, 1/4 a cup for about 16 ounces of water. I boiled the water and added the barley and then continued to boil it for 5 minutes. And I added some honey.

Anyway, I like this brew. It’s malty and roasted tasting, which is unsurprising. I will probably keep drinking this through the winter. I don’t have much to say other than that.

EDIT: I made a second batch of this with a bit less barley, as I was looking over the recipe I was using and I realized I probably used too much. The second batch was not nearly as good. Anyway, for me, I think this brew needs 1/4 cup for about 12-16 ounces of water.

It’s kinda like green tea without the tea. There is a roasty flavor to this that I really like. I may have already said this but it is hard not to eat this tea. I eat half popped kernals of popcorn that don’t quite pop all the way. Like cooking some teas happen by accident take a left over…a grain…a flower steep it and there you go :-)

To quote So I married an Axe Murderer " I believe all Scotish cuisine is based on a dare". Same goes here. What do you do with the left over popcorn kernels that didn’t pop….throw em in a tea pot and see what you get. I happen to like the warm unpopped kernels so I do like this tisane.

OK, you’ve convinced me to drag the sample bags back out and give mine a revisit.

I took a chance on this one for 2.99. I honesty had to keep myself from eating it as a snack because I love crunching on unpopped popcorn kernels. When steeping there is a nice roasted aroma. I let it steep for awhile. The flavor was very light almost like a watered down coffee or if you just put coffee beans into a strainer and poured hot water on the with out grinding….ahem Not like I’ve done that before. Different but I like it.

Well, it was sweet, and not bad at all. It reminded me of a light white tea, and was so nice and sweet it didn’t need sweetener. It really didn’t capture my attention or was a memorable enough flavor to leave me craving more but I am very glad I got to try some of this unique tea.

Glad you reminded me I have a couple of sample bags still tucked away—now that the weather is changing, maybe the “harvesty” flavor will hit the spot.
