Review: Asahi - Juroku Cha

Asahi Juroku Cha is a "traditional Japanese grain and botanical tea" made from 16 ingredients (mostly grains and leaves but also with black soybeans and shitake mushrooms). It's basically a zero-calorie, caffeine-free health drink (you can find the list of purported benefits from each of the ingredients on their website).

I've seen it at Ranch 99 for about $2 per 16.9-oz bottle but I received this courtesy of Asahi. If you're interested in trying it but can't find it near you, it's also sold on Amazon in a 12-pack for $29.99.

The tea has a fairly light flavor overall and is pretty refreshing cold. It's most similar to a mild barley tea (which I find to be roasty and a little nutty) but with a bit of an earthy finish. There's a slight bit of an astringent (drying) feeling as you would get from some teas.

At the end of the day, I enjoyed Asahi Juroku Cha (the name literally means "16 tea") because I enjoy drinking barley tea. It might be worth a try if you like (or want to try) barley tea.
