Korean Corn Silk Tea


What is Corn Silk? It’s the long threadlike things at the top of an ear of the corn. According to WebMD, “Corn silk is used for bladder infections, inflammation of the urinary system, inflammation of the prostate, kidney stones, and bedwetting. It is also used to treat congestive heart failure, diabetes, high blood pressure, fatigue, and high cholesterol levels.” Does it really work? My other question would be, how do you verify that drink is the corn silk tea?

Korean Corn Silk Tea

There’s a strong roasted corn aroma coming out from the bottle after you open it.  There was no sign of tea smell from the aroma at all. My first reaction toward its packaging was that it’s a corn related alcohol drink. Maybe it’s because I don’t understand the Korean language. The color of this tea drink looked like a high end alcohol drink.  As for the taste, the very first sip tasted very light and it almost tasted like tap water. After couple more sips, it still tasted same as if it was the first sip. There was no sign of tea flavor existed in the drink at all. As you drink more, the aftertaste makes you think that you were drinking a barley tea drink instead of corn silk tea. After you’ve chugged down half bottle of the drink, the only recognizable thing that you could identify would be the roasted smell that you get from drinking this tea drink. If you take that away, it would be just a regular water drink.
