Japanese herbal tea
I’m still in the middle of working this week so I’m not writing out recipes. I found an unopened bag of herbal barley tea (from Japan) that my friend Tamaki gave me a long while back. It’s a mix of grains (seeds?) and herbs (grasses), some I’ve seen in Chinese herbal teas. It has a nice mild flavor and was good for keeping your sinuses clear during high pollen season. Unfortunately the bag had expired, I tasted to make sure. The bag list the company’s email and that led me to the Japanese site. I googled ‘murataen’ and found one English site that sell ‘Ban Noh Cha by Murataen; Japanese Herbal Mix’ but the ordering has to be done thru email or calling, I don’t like non-online ordering. Other Japanese barley teas I’ve tried never taste the same, and Chinese herbal teas have a similar flavor but also not the same.
