Lemon barley drink
This lemon barley drink (柠檬薏米水) is an easy and refreshing drink that is perfect for the hot tropical summer days. The barley drink tastes good on its own, but for added vitamin C & colour, add a few drops of lemon juice and a slice of lemon. Winter melon sugar complement the taste of barley more than rock sugar in my opinion, but it is not as sweet, so you can add a small amount of rock sugar, to taste, to sweeten up at the end if you like. This cooling tea is mild enough to drink daily. For step-by-step photos for making barley drink, check out this detailed tutorial here.
