Dried Barley Tea Introduction
Barley tea is one if not the most popular drinks in Japan, South Korea and China. It actually replaces drinking water in many restaurants in Korea and it is famous as a refreshing cold beverage in Japan. Barley tea does not color your teeth and has no effects on your sleeping habbits because it’s caffeine-free.
You can find barley tea by different names. In China, it is known as maicha, mugicha is its Japanese name, and it is called boricha in Korea. Barley is harvested in early summer and the grains are carefully picked and roasted briefly until they are dark brown. That is what gives this tea its slightly toasty undertones which mix with the sweet flavor. The color of the tea is a beautiful orange or light brown and it will win you over with its mesmerizing aroma.
Barley is actually one of the oldest grains consumed by humans and it has been around for thousands of years. It was used for food, making alcoholic beverages and it was even used as a currency. Barley was considered to be the king of grains and it was widely celebrated. It is a whole grain that is low in fat and calories but contains a lot of fiber and important nutrients, and for that reason it has been an important cooking ingredient in many cultures from ancient times to the modern world. One cup of barley contains 217 calories, 1 gram of fat, and as much as 10 grams of fiber.
When ancient Eastern civilizations started to cultivate barley and recognized what a powerful grain it is, they soon started making tea from it. Its medicinal benefits were recognized from the very beginning and it was known as a natural remedy.
The refreshing property of dried barley tea was perfect for the East Asian humid and hot climate and that is why it is traditionally consumed as a cold beverage. Some even say that this tea is a better thirst quenching drink than water.
If you want to get completely immersed in the Asian culture, this tea goes very well together with Asian food, especially Korean. You can serve barley tea with spicy noodles, bulgogi, Korean stir fry noodles, or soft tofu soup. It is also a perfect drink to sip on while you eat a spicy kimchi because it will help to calm down the effect of hot spices.
It is no wonder that dried barley tea managed to spread all over the world as a widely enjoyed beverage that many different cultures enjoy because it is so amazingly versatile and flavorsome.
