Because it is roasted deeply, the colour is deep even when brewing with cold water, and you can fully enjoy the taste and aroma. 

Roasted in Nerima, Tokyo since its establishment in 1940. The technology that has been handed down from generation to generation continues to evolve with a focus on quality.

The taste and aroma of this exceptional mugicha tea can only be obtained by the “Sand kiln method” where the barley is thrown into a 300° brick kiln with sand heating and then slowly passed through the heat by a skilled craftsman. Unlike with general hot air roasting, since the sand evenly distributes the heat to the barley, the grains explode and swell, creating a delicious barley tea. Only the "sand pot roasting" method allows the surface of the material to be thoroughly baked by skilled craftsmen, while preventing unnecessary evaporation of the moisture inside and allowing the heat to pass through. With this particular manufacturing method, the "Tokyo barley tea" delivers a masterpiece with the original fragrance of the ingredients, sweetness and faint bitterness. 

Unlike coffee, black tea, and green tea, it doesn't have a diuretic effect, so you don't have to worry about going to the restroom even if you drink it before going to bed.

It also has the effect of preventing the formation and adhesion of bacteria and microorganisms that cause tooth decay to the teeth, so if you make it a habit to drink barley tea, you can expect to create an oral environment that is less prone to tooth decay.

In addition, the fragrant ingredients unique to barley tea are recognised to have the effect of making the blood clean. It also has an antioxidant effect, and can be expected to suppress "active oxygen", which is one of the causes of cancer, stroke, arteriosclerosis, and myocardial infarction.

 “Tokyo Mugicha Tea Pack” is roasted more deeply than “Tokyo Mugicha Maru-tsubu grain type”, so you can fully enjoy the taste and aroma even when brewing with cold water. Ideal for those who want to enjoy "Tokyo barley tea" easily and quickly. Contents: 10g x 20 bags

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
