After Auggy tried this one I decided I’d stop being lame and try it.

I don’t know why I was so intimidated with it. I think that it was because it looked so different from what I’ve gotten used to. I’ve had mugi-cha before in Korean BBQ restaurants and I’ve really enjoyed that, so it shouldn’t have seemed so foreign to me, but even I’m a little afraid to delve into how my brain works so I’m not going to dig any further.

Anyhow, there’s a nice picture of it that you can already see, but here’s a triptych of my little experience last night.

I’m going to second everything that Auggy said, which yeah, is lazy, but also saves me from being redundant.

In a sentence: light, sweet-glazed puffed wheat cereal.

In a word: NOM.

I can easily see this being a flavor that I crave on certain days and would go down extremely well after large, heavy meals. Especially ones that involve marinated meat. Maybe that’s why they serve barley tea at Korean BBQ – because after consuming what must have been a pound of bul gogi it emerges as one of the only things I can drink without wanting to die.

I got sleepy before I think the tea did – I stopped at cup three and went to bed. I’ll have to start this earlier with what I’ve got left and see how many cups I can get through before it goes weak on me.

I’ll be ordering more of this one once I make my way through the rest of the maeda-en sampler I got. S’good.
