Stupid Tea

Green tea tastes like grass to me.  Not that I know what grass tastes like, but I imagine it has the earthy, weedy taste that green tea possesses.  I decided to do a little research on it today, and damn there are a lot of kinds of green tea.

Well, at least green tea I can deal with.  It's mugicha that I have a problem with.  The taste, the smell...I mean, I just can't understand how anyone could be thinking "Mmmm, I could really go for some barley juice right about now."  That's essentially what mugicha is - it's barley tea.  Yuck.

Grass does taste the way you described, can't make a great meal out of it but when you fall face first into it, it's something that you can eat while your down there.

Hey barley tastes good in beef barley soup. But I guess someone has to get it wrong sometime. Thank You Japan.
