Growing up in Cupertino, mugicha (barley tea) is something Yoko's mom would always have on the ready, in the fridge. After a long bike ride around the neighborhood with friends, mugicha on ice was a thirst quencher that signaled the summer. 

Mugicha has a roasted, nutty, smoky flavor with a slight flavor of caramel. There is no need to add sugar, and there's no caffeine, making it a perfect substitute for sugary sodas and juices. Mugicha is rich in vitamins, and antioxidants. It is said to help prevent diabetes and lower cholesterol.
