A popular Korean grain "tea", Sungyung is just well-roasted rice steeped in hot water. It has a nutty, smoky flavor.
This recipe makes a large batch of roasted rice so that you can have a cup of sungyung whenever you feel like it. If you just want to make a few cups of tea, you can also just fry some rice in a dry (no oil) pan.
