Barley tea is full of antioxidants and it's good for circulation and digestion. It has a light, nutty taste (it almost has a toasted popcorn flavor) and when it's chilled, it's incredibly refreshing.
½ cup barley
2 to 3 quarts water
If you're toasting your own barley, start by heating up a heavy pan (like cast iron) and toss in the barley. Stir constantly and stand over the pan until the grains are golden.
