When seated at a Korean restaurant, you are typically served a drink of Roasted Corn or barley tea, which will often be lukewarm. Koreans traditionally choose drinks that are neither too hot nor too cold. In this non-caffeinated tea, the dark roasted corn kernels produce an aroma of popped corn. It has a subtle flavor and is a perfect ending for a spicy meal. Some say it aids in digestion.
