Tea is the first nonalcoholic beverage that comes to most people's mind when they think of Japan but the truth is that during the summer, there's another drink that monopolizes the interest (and cups) of the Japanese and that is mugicha (barley tea). Its popular summer version comes in big teabags that can make more than a liter of the beverage but if you're looking for a more sophisticated way to experience this deeply Japanese cuppa, the Honjien Kurogoma Mugicha Black Sesame Barley Tea is for you!
Taking the regular mugicha to a whole new level, the 5 g (0.1 oz) bags contain a mix of barley, black soybeans and black sesame, guaranteeing a flavor you have never tried before. Since this is essentially a barley tea, it doesn't contain any caffeine, but the added black soybeans and black sesame mean more antioxidants, better hair and skin health, and more regulated metabolism. If you're looking for a healthier alternative to your regular coffee, or just an alternative to tea, do like the Japanese and give it a try!
