A barley tea from the Korean cafe filled me with quiet cheer. The little old lady filled the cup carefully, no grand gestures or attempts at small talk, just a nod and a reassuring smile as she handed over my change. Sometimes it’s better that way.

Peachy in colour, with aromas of straw and syrup on the nose. Notes of sugar puff coming through on the palate. An easygoing option for a girl about town.
