delicious asian tea with amazing health benefits
This tea is a staple in the Korean diet. Since I am half Korean, I was introduced to it at a young age, but I did not begin drinking it regularly until just recently.
Barley Tea or "boricha" (in Korean), is naturally caffeine free, delicious, and has a long list of health benefits. Korean families drink boricha all day long instead of just pure water. Even babies transition from a mother's breast milk to boricha once they are able.
You can drink it hot or cold and you can find it at your local H-Mart (Korean grocery store) or on Amazon.com. For those who aren't typically tea drinkers, I highly recommend giving this a try. It has a refreshing roasted "woodsy" flavor that I absolutely love. Since I have been drinking boricha on a regular basis, I have felt so clean and refreshed!
BENEFITS OF DRINKING BORICHA
Cleanses the system, ridding the body of toxins
Helps aid weight loss
High in antioxidants and essential amino acids
Increases blood fluidity, ridding the blood of impurities
Regulates blood sugar level
Cures cold symptoms
Promotes oral health, inhibiting growth of germs and disease
Contains amino acid tryptophan and melatonin which promotes healthy sleep patterns
So, basically, you should give it a try!
