This tea is very comforting and did help me unwind quite a bit after a long day. I’m gradually learning that I really LOVE barley tea!

First of all, the tea bags are HUGE! I didn’t realize they were this large, until after opening the package. I was expecting a bag for 8-12oz, but they are created for 2 liters! I’m glad there is only a small difference there between the sizes (a tad bit of sarcasm here;). It actually worked out, because the size of the bag gave plenty of room for a proper steeping.

You will find no bitterness with this tea, just a very nice roasted flavor. The liquid is smooth and thick -almost creamy. The aftertaste left a lingering sharpness, almost tart. Kinda hard to describe.

After infusion, I inspected the contents inside the bag and found a very dark roasted grain. Somewhere around 85% of the grains were whole, leaving only a small amount of pieces.

My next experiment will be following the directions on cold brewing this delicious tea. I’m sure that it will be very good. The hot brew was nice, but I could see this one being even better cold.


This sounds like one you could cook with, too.

I love barley tea. And yes, I am often tempted to use it as a soup or sauce base.


I’ve never used barley tea as a base cooked with it, but sounds very intriguing! I guess its time to search for a recipe. :)

Picked this up at the local Asian supermarket. I am having tea buying withdrawal symptoms since it’s taking since April for my Yunnan Sourcing order to come! lol

I love buckwheat tea so I thought why not give barley tea a try? It came in this HUGE 2 lb bag for $3.99. If I didn’t like it I wasn’t out a lot of money.

On the bag it said to add 2 tbsps. to 2 litres of water and boil for 20 min. I checked out some other reviews and other people had used more tea and about the same amount of water. I just put what looked like 2 litres in a pot, not really measuring. Then added 3 tbsps. and boiled for 20 min.

Mmmm, it was nice and comforting toasty . It doesn’t taste like buckwheat. Definitely has it’s own flavor but it’s toasty with that grain flavor. Hot, this makes a soothing, warming herbal drink in the colder days. I still enjoyed it now and took the rest to put in the fridge to have as iced. It’s supposed to be pretty good cold too.
