Ever had Strawberry Pocky? Or those Yan Yan sticks you dip into strawberry-flavoured cream? Or basically anything strawberry-flavoured in an Asian dessert or snack? Add some milk and this tastes exactly like that stuff. The creamy kind of strawberry, not the tangy kind.
Oversteeped this slightly at 6 minutes and the roasted barley taste overtook the strawberry flavour ever so slightly, but still delicious with milk. At 4.5 minutes in boiling water like I usually do, you’d get a sweeter strawberry note.
This takes well to a second steeping but of course, it’s a bit lighter and I sometimes drink the second round plain.
I liked the Caramel & Honey Orzo but this one is even better in my opinion!
