Cocoa Anise Barley Tea

Rated 4.6 out of 5
Based on 130 reviews

Tastes Like: biscotti, aniseed, cocoa butter, toasted barley
Feels Like: golden grain harvest

Divine comfort in the dark hours of winter. Inspired by the original barley tisane kykeon, the ritual drink of devotees of the Greek goddess Demeter, this tea has a satin texture and creamy flavor. Nutty roasted barley and malt are enriched by the subtle aroma of sweet aniseed and roasted cacao. A splash of your favorite milk turns up its natural sweetness.

Better than I expected

I was really curious, never having had a barley tea before, but I was ready for it to be totally unappealing. Turns out, it was better than that; it reminded me of a hot breakfast cereal like maltomeal, but with top shelf grain and a fancy touch of black licorice sweetener. I imagine if I had more nostalgia for hot breakfast cereal, this would be amazing comfort tea. It is easy to drink and offers a full mouth feel. I just don't find myself craving more, so it must not be for me.

Hands down favorite

This has become a necessary part of my evenings - I adore this tea. It's smooth, sweet, warm, and comforting but without being cloying - great for people who don't like overly "sugary" or flavored beverages. The anise is just right, not overpowering. I haven't seen it available in a canister but I'm a newer customer, but just to say that I'd gladly buy a full canister of it!
