2 Tasting Notes
The ingenuiTEA is a solid product in my opinion, and allows for a nice good steeping of tea for an individual, though cleaning it seems to be more of a chore for some reason than many teapots or other methods. My main issue is that the trap to let tea out seems to leak over time and can get a bit messy. Otherwise, a great idea and good product!
In my experience, I’ve found that people tend to approach barley tea with some hesitance, and it becomes either a love or hate beverage for those who are willing to try it. Personally, I had no idea this had even existed until I visited a Korean restaurant near Atlanta, and was pleasantly surprised! The aroma doesn’t try to mask anything, the grain smell of barley makes itself clear, and the taste is satisfying and dull, with a hint of natural sweetness. I agree with the other reviewers, I’ve found that it is an ideal iced tea, especially with the size of these particular packets, but it makes for a fine hot beverage as well in the morning. Please don’t pass up on a chance to try it!
