There is a surprise in the paper.
Kinako (powdered roast soy beans) becomes …
These are kinako-bo, sweets made of kinako and honey (or syrup).
They taste a little like ginger bread, a little like caramels.

The second surprise-pocket contains :
It’s roast wheat… oops, no, it’s barley, actually. Omugi (barley) and komugi (wheat), 50% chance of error, I plunged. That will teach me to check.
It is infused in hot or cold water. You just need to put the bag in a pitcher of water, put in the fridge one hour. That makes the mugi-cha drink. That looks like tea, taste is close to roast tea. There is no caffeine in it. The cold version is very popular in Summer.
Now I wonder if the wheat version exist. I know there are soba-cha, of roast buckwheat, tomorokoshi-cha, roast corn (a Korean one) and some mix bags with roast white or black soy, popped genmai brown rice… So why not wheat ? When I have time, I’ll put a few spoons of spelt in the pop-corn skillet.
