Drop one of these bags into a quart or liter of water for a cold, refreshing, caffeine-free mugicha (barley tea). Each box comes with 16 bags.
Growing up in Cupertino, mugicha 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.
