Mugicha (Barley) One-Pot Teabags
Caffeine-free, Mugicha is made simply from roasted barley. Enjoy its smooth taste and roasted aroma hot or cold.
Mugicha is a drink made from brewing roasted barley grains, and the Japanese have enjoyed its malty, roasted character for centuries. Mugicha is caffeine-free.
Ippodo selects six-row barley grown in Japan for its Mugicha, and roasts it slowly until it reaches the right balance of aroma and flavor.
Ippodo Mugicha is a refreshing beverage with a lovely toasty aroma and a hint of sweetness.
Mugicha can be brewed hot or cold and enjoyed year-round.
Tea lovers also enjoy Mugicha as a chaser or alternative to alcohol at happy hour. Since it is caffeine-free, you can drink it to relax after dinner and before bedtime.

This is the fine, delicate barley-luscious tea of my dreams. I haven't been able to find it since being in South Korea.
It save my life during a recent four day power outage
I been drinking a cold pitcher of this every day now, too good. I forget to drink water a lot but this is like water but with some extra flavor and I’ve really come around to it very quickly. Definitely a good one to keep in the arsenal, also appreciate that it only takes abt an hour to cold brew cause I’m used to ones that are more like 6-8, with mugicha the lead time from “wish I was sippin” to “actively sippin” is very short!
Just in time for the summer, we cold brew this delicious barley tea, easily did 3 x 1 liter on the same tea bag following the instructions 1 hour in chill water. Highly recommended
Absolutely superb flavor and very easy to prepare.
I love the refreshing taste of this mugicha brewed with chilled filtered water for an hour, as recommended. The glass teapot and its lid with built-in sieve holds a generous 3 cups.
This tea has a subtly sweet, almost chocolatey flavor without any of the mustiness I’ve experienced with other brands. (I also enjoy the tea hot in the winter.) I’m so glad Ippodo now has a store in the USA, because shipping is a lot quicker than from Kyoto! Will definitely purchase again.
