drank Toasted Barley by SourceTea
71 tasting notes

So, who is SourceTea? Isn’t he active on Steepster? Or maybe he was active several months ago on Steepster?

Anyway, I wasn’t ready to stop drinking something warm tonight, but I also didn’t want to start something caffeinated this late in the day. So I got this sample out, and it is really just roasted barley. Like… I could buy some barley for a couple bucks at the grocery store, toast it in a dry wok and BOOM — have a pound of roasted barley tea available. And I may do that, actually, because this is sort of nice, and it’s good to have a no-caffeine hot beverage for winter. It doesn’t taste or smell like it’s rancid, which is sort of strange since whole grains have a short shelf life. I mean, it probably should be rancid by now because it’s been sitting around for at least 8 months.

It’s decent, but seriously… I can’t believe people get away with selling this when it would take about 10 minutes to make a large quantity of your own.

Not sure if SourceTea is still active here or not, but… I actually ordered this in a sampler because I wasn’t big on flavored teas and it is just the one ingredient. It was pretty low-cost from what I recall. And I’m looking forward to trying all the other stuff I got from him, which all has tea (or, I think think there’s one that’s just rooibos, but the rest are teas).
