Mugi Cha is a traditional Japanese tea made from barley. It has the fresh aroma and full-bodied taste of a good barley tea. Mugi Cha does not contain caffeine. The product is truly made for a tea purist. It is unsweetened and all natural. Although a popular thirst-quencher in Japan, Mugi Cha will be entirely new to most North American taste buds. At least the consumer can rest assured that it (like all of Ito En's Tea's Tea products) will be of high quality. Overall, this is a fine product.
