From Soocha Tea

Our Barley Sprout tea is made with the first young barley leaves that sprout and grow against the cold valley winds of winter at the base of Jiri Mountain.

Processed by our tea master using the same traditional techniques of tea making, this herbal tea carries a fascinating aroma of steamed spinach and the delightful flavours of roasted nuts with natural sweetness.

This is a great caffeine-free substitute for green tea.

This is a unique and pleasant tisane that reminds me of nothing so much as toasted nori, in flavour and scent. There’s a light note of complementary sweet nuttiness that rounds the flavour off. It would be an excellent choice for people looking for something caffeine-free that will still provide much of the satisfaction you’d get from a good Japanese green tea.

Gongfu!

Though this tisane has a bit of a cooked leafy green vegetable note that I don’t always love, I found myself craving something just a bit greener for my session today and this ended up being a solid choice as it shares many of the tasting notes that I do tend to enjoy in a nice Chinese or pan-fired green tea. Y’know, for the rare occasions that I venture outside of my Hojicha comfort zone.

It’s fresh with a lighter, bright sugar cane type of sweetness but also packs a bit of a nuttier punch. Roasted chestnuts, hazelnut, and peanut oil on the back end of the sip. The liquor is slick, and free from any bitterness or astringency. I think it’s pretty hard to go wrong here whether you’re a little more green tea adverse (like myself) or a fan of more nutty and vegetal Chinese and Korean green teas.
