Good job for adding details about how to make Hyeonmi Cha. As I haven't made one myself (I only drank it from tea packet), I just put the dictionary definition of Hyeonmi Cha, which had very rough description of how to make it. Now I can make one myself :) Stevefis 05:02, 7 September 2007 (UTC)

Grains[edit]

If poured into a glass carefully without using a sieve, a few grains of rice will go into the cup. I am told by a Korean friend that this is normal and okay. Can this be confirmed by other Koreans? I would like to add this information to the article. Badagnani (talk) 09:39, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

It wouldn't be a big problem if you drink it with the grain, but in a typical tea shop or cafe that serves Hyeonmi cha, it is usually served without the grains, because some people likes to drink it without it. It goes same as bori (barley) cha, etc.Stevefis (talk) 01:37, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not a collection of trivias[edit]

"While in restaurants the tea is typically strained and served without any grains of rice, when prepared at home a few grains may be poured from the pot into the cup." This kind of sentence would apply to almost any kind of teas and besides, it is more of a common knowledge rather than a specific knowledge about Hyeonmi Cha. It's like adding a sentence "When using a common teabag, a black tea is prepared by simmering the teabag in a hot water for a for few minutes and then the teabag is discarded or used for other purposes." You put information that people would find 'informative', not a trivial common sense like this. You need to put information that is derived from authoritative sources not personal experiences or opinions Stevefis (talk) 04:17, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

You should take a look at Wikipedia:No original research It clearly states that Wikipedia is clearly not a place to publish your own opinions or experiences, which also includes mine. I just answered the question in the discussion, because I thought you were merely curious, but I didn't expect you to put it in the actual article.Stevefis (talk) 04:26, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

That is only common sense for Koreans; all other cultures would want to know this information. Badagnani (talk) 04:36, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

It is a common sense for all tea-consuming nations that some of the tea's or hot drink's residue can be left in it such as coffee, tea brewed without teabag, etc. Besides, did you read my second post above? Can you provide any verfiable source to back up your claim?

Sweetening[edit]

ko:WP says that this drink may be sweetened with sugar or honey. Is this correct? Badagnani (talk) 23:05, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

I never sweeten hyeonmi-cha before drinking. But then I never sweeten green-tea (obviously), black tea, and coffee. I guess some people sweeten hyeonmi-cha with sugar or honey. Apparently, that's what ko:WP says as well as its source.Stevefis (talk) 00:52, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Hyeonmi-chaBrown rice tea – To be consistent with similar tea articles such as Barley tea, Corn tea, and Buckwheat tea. Regarding genmaicha, a blended green tea, I think a hatnote like "This page is about the infusion made from roasted brown rice. For the Japanese green tea, see Genmaicha." should be enough as the green tea is usually referred to as "genmaicha" rather than "brown rice tea". This article should be the primary topic of brown rice tea. Postcol (talk) 13:09, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
