Mugicha is the quintessential taste of Japanese summer. Aromatic, lightly sweet, and with a delicious nutty flavor, this is the first tea people reach for when trying to cool off.

Typically served cold, this drink is the go-to refreshment in Japan during the hot and humid summer months. Between June and September, there isn't a Japanese household without a pitcher of Mugicha in the fridge. And, as a nutritious and naturally caffeine-free tisane made from roasted barley, it's suitable for people of all ages, including children. Easy to make and easy to enjoy, Mugicha is the perfect addition to your summer tea lineup.

Gluten Content Information:

Our Mugicha is made from a species of barley that is naturally very low in gluten called Rokujou Oomugi, also known as "Six-Row Barley" in English. The FDA has determined that 20ppm of gluten is the threshold for what is safe for people with Celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. While our Mugicha cannot be labeled as "gluten-free", the gluten content is 17ppm, which is below this threshold.

Company History:

The history of Sugimoto Tea Company starts with Zenichi Sugimoto. In 1946, Shizuoka and the rest of Japan was just at the start of a long road to post-war recovery. Looking for the best way to help his family and his community, Zenichi decided to hand-make tea and delivered it to all of his customers by bike. His teas were so well-liked by the locals that soon it was necessary to build a factory to meet the high demands for Sugimoto tea. And so, Sugimoto Seicha was born.
