On a hot, humid summer day in Japan, you can find just about everyone drinking cold brew Mugicha tea. An extremely refreshing, cooling beverage, mugicha will immediately quench your thirst. Mugicha is made from roasted barley (mugi for barley and cha for tea), and has a toasty taste, with slightly bitter undertones. It’s more savoury than sweet. Often served with honey. Caffeine-free.
