When summer comes, a tea known as “mugicha” becomes a staple in Japan. That is a roasted barley tea, not made from camellia sinensis. So, you may say this is tea-like tea, not tea-tea. But whatever you might say, it is considered to be a must as a cooling summer tea.
Thanks to caffeine-free, men and women of all ages gulp their “mugicha” to overcome scorching heat!
