Roasted Spring Barley

(4 customer reviews)

£11.96 - £14.36




Barley, a cereal grain, has been cultivated and used for over 10,000 years as an ingredient for bread, stews, soups, and beer. Barley is widely used for drinking purposes – in Italy powdered barley is used as a coffee substitute and in Japan iced barley tisane, known as mugicha, is drunk during the hot summer months. Barley tisane was considered an ancient healer and used for its health benefits, such as promoting a well-functioning digestion system. At present, roasted barley tisane is used in traditional medicine as an herbal remedy for boosting immunity, improving cognitive function (with recent clinical studies showing increased speed of performance and episodic memory), protecting the cardiovascular system and for hydration.

Naturally grown without the use of any pesticides or chemicals, our roasted spring barley is harvested 1,200 – 1,500m above sea level from the Zangezur Mountains of Armenia. Only the outer husks have been removed (and the barley itself has not been pearled), which means higher nutritional content within each grain. Our spring barley is lightly roasted to bring out the grassy and sweet flavours.

Barley tisane may be drunk hot or cold, and may be enjoyed before a meal to aid digestion or during or after exercise for increased hydration.

**Based on servings.

Please note the pouches are not airtight, and therefore once opened, your tisane should be transferred to an airtight caddy or storage jar in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and strong odours. We do not recommend glass, plastic and paper containers. Any noted health benefits of our herbal infusions are from traditional medicine and should not be used to prevent or cure any disease.

    This makes me feel refreshed in the morning. I’m happy it’s caffeine free too so I can cut down on the coffee which I don’t feel I need as much.

  2. Christopher F

    What can I say but simply a delicious tea at any time of the day!! I look forward to trying it cold on hot summer days.

  3. Siew

    I enjoy the tea which is smooth, nutty and light with an undertone of sweetness. It quiches my thirst and much more refreshing than water. Best of all, it’s pesticides free.

  4. Farah Morley

    My daughter is reading Homer and drinking this tea. It’s her favourite and it is delicious and warming and has provenance on a level that most teas don’t. This is definitely a classical cuppa!
