Iced Quinoa Mocha

Iced Quinoa Mocha

Grain teas are an ancient tradition in Asia, & with good reason—roasted grains make an amazing beverage!

Roasting transforms any grain into nutty and intense. Quinoa tastes the most like roasted coffee, with a full-body flavor, but with no caffeine and with lots of antioxidants. Make this chilly mocha with malted barley powder for a tasty twist on an old favorite.
