The roasted barley drink sounds interesting! Do you roast/toast the barley yourself?

i can't see what difference boiling the water makes. if there is sediment in the tap water it will also be in the boiled water. i have done it my way for many years. don't remember the tea tasting funny.

of course i also made sun tea, now we are told that is not good. who knows?

You can get pretty much the same results in a safe way by putting tea bags in the pitcher of water and letting it sit in the refrigerator over night.
