From Lupicia

An ancient variety of barley grown in Italy gives a sweet, rich hazelnut and chocolate fragrance.

Tastes as much like chocolate as carob does, but it is a very pleasant tea. I made mine with warm milk and sugar. Don’t let it steep too long or it will become bitter, IMO. Great tea for a rainy afternoon.

Oh dear, what have I just sipped? I had this last night and it was not at all to my tastes. It brewed up amazingly dark, and left a good deal of “grit” in my tea cup. It did have a chocolate-y scent but the taste was all malty barley with a horrid bitterness towards the end of the sip. There was a light flavour of baker’s chocolate, but that bitterness ruined any joy I might have gotten from this tea. Not a fan what so ever. So, I’m glad this was a..

Sipdown!

This sample came from Dexter awhile ago. I have had so many samples this one got overlooked until now. I haven’t been doing any tea notes lately as all I’ve been having on the Candida diet is Pau D’arco tea, peppermint & some rooibos. Today I thought I would try something different but herbal. I was surprised this one was herbal.

It brewed up so dark I wondered if there was coffee in it even though it was marked herbal. I searched on Lupicia’s website and discovered no coffee but is roasted barley. Wow, it’s dark and robust with chocolatey notes. It’s a bit too dark for me though. If I had been a coffee drinker trying to get off coffee this tea would be spot on. However, I am a green tea lover looking for something herbal like a green tea. Any coffee lovers out there will enjoy this tea!

Hmmmm interesting – I actually haven’t tried this one yet. Am putting it on my “inspired by dashboard list for tomorrow”. If this is coffee ish, I’m going to like it – sorry that it wasn’t for you. :((

I haven’t had this but I can imagine it being coffeish. Orzo is what you will most likely be served if you ask for decaf coffee in most places I have been in Italy.

Thanks Dexter. It was still a good tea , just not for me.

Ubacat

Ah, so they are drinking it as a replacement coffee!

Yes, most of the time they have it in a nescafe type machine, but I did see a few places pull it through an espresso machine.
