Korea's Staple Tea
[Organic Story] Organic Sprouted Barley Tea
Barley Tea is the most popular tea in Korea.
Referred to as Boricha in Korean, this tea is made by boiling roasted, unhulled barley kernels. The tea has a mild, toasty flavor with a slightly bitter undertone. Korean like to consume it hot or cold, often taking the place of drinking water in many homes and restaurants.
Does it have any health benefits? Barley tea is famous for helping with digestion and bowel movements as it contains high level of fiber. It also has antioxidants that help relieve sudden stomach cramps and improve blood flow throughout the body.
Organic Story grows its barley in Korea 100% organically - without any pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Best of all, they pick the barley after it has sprouted. Whats the difference? Seeds - when they sprout - release enzymes that make the nutrients in the seed easier to absorb and digest. Simply stated, sprouted seeds are more nutritious for you.
