Barley Tea

Barley Tea,/b> may sound weird to those living in North America, however it is a popular herbal tea enjoyed in both Korea and Japan.

The tea is drank in both the cold tea or iced tea form as well as a hot tea. The barley is roasted and it even is available in tea bag form in Japan. Mugicha is the name used for barley herbal tea in Japan. It is really popular. Toasting gives a really nutty flavor to the tea, and it is very pleasant tasting.

My personal preference is the iced version, but many people enjoy it as a hot tea - worth trying if you are a true tea lover.

In Korea, the tea is called boricha. The roasted barley is ground and steeped just like regular tea, however it is caffeine free. You can often find ground barley as a major ingredient in coffee substitutes. The iced form of the drink is also very popular in Mexico and is sold as aguas frescas from street vendors almost everywhere.

In Britan, barley herbal tea is sold as a popular soft drink and flavored with lemon.

Tea Fact

Barley herbal tea is the drink served to participants at Wimbledon every year. It is the official drink of Wimbleton.

So if you are looking for a different type of tea to try, barley may be just the thing. It is an aquired taste, but you can also get hooked on it. It is really delicious.
