A Taste of Semen Coicis

Barley Drink

This was nothing but a local barley drink that I quickly grabbed from the Chinese herbal tea shop at the basement of Takashimaya tonight. It was only after I nearly finished the bottle did I notice the first word in the list of ingredients. In retrospect, it looks like it's in reference to some kind of Traditional Chinese Medicine. And in fact, it looks like it's some kind of seed, to which I can't help but chuckle a bit, especially given the color of the drink. Yeah, I know...this is pretty childish of me. Maybe I should send my collection to Jay Leno for his Headlines bit.
