Barley tea, also known as “boricha” in Korean and “mugicha” in Japanese is a traditional beverage that has been enjoyed for centuries in many countries across East Asia. The tea is made by roasting barley grains and then steeping them in hot water, resulting in a flavourful and caffeine-free infusion.

Barley is a versatile and hardy crop that is grown in various climates around the world.
It has a distinctive nutty flavour with toasty notes. The roasting process gives the tea a mild, earthy taste, often described as slightly sweet.
Barley tea has gained the attention of health enthusiasts for its potential weight management properties as well as a wide variety of other benefits.
In Japan, Barley tea is most commonly known as Mugicha and is often served as a refreshing drink, especially during the hot summer months.
To make it, you can steep the barley for about 10 minutes, then decant and put in the fridge to chill.
For a stronger flavour, boil the barley for 10-20 min. Let it cool down and then put it in the fridge (you can also add ice cubes to it, but it might dilute the flavour)
You can store your Mugicha in the fridge for 5-7 days.
