drank Barley Tea by House Foods
1 tasting notes

I really like this “tea”, both hot and cold, tho I preferred it hot. I originally tried it since I wanted a healthy non-caffeinated tea-like drink. It’s popular in Japan as a summer drink, but don’t see any reason not to drink it year-round. I find I would drink quite a lot of this, refilling the teapot a few times.

Sadly, I eventually discovered that if I drank much of this I would have a slight headache later in the day or the next morning and it would linger all day. It took a while before I made the correlation. Searching the internet I discovered that some people are allergic to it, and a headache was the usual result.

I don’t know how common this allergy is, but should you find you get a headache after drinking it, note this could be the cause.

However, I can’t rate this poorly since it’s not the fault of the tea per se – just an oddity with my body chemistry. It is well worth a try!
