This is a drink that customers usually orders at cafes and restaurants in Hong Kong. To get rid of the old, the congestion and build-up of waste in your colon! In with the new food`s and nutrient`s for the body.

The barley with lemon aids digestion and act as a detox for a colon cleanse. Best to drink it hot and by boiling over a medium/low heat to help extracts the natural sweetness and its beneficial properties from the barley.

You can add a spoonful or two of honey when you consume this drink. I usually drink and then eat all the barley at the bottom of my cup.
