Our new selection of tea from well established tea maker Ippodo.

Ippodo has been producing tea and tea in Kyoto since 1717 and is one of the most respected tea makers in Japan. They have teahouses across Japan as well as in New York. They not only sell top quality tea, but are also very active in communicating great stories and flavours of tea and tea culture around the world.

Made from barley that is slow roasted and then coarsely cracked to ensure the best flavour, mugicha makes a refreshing drink on a hot summer’s day. With its nutty aroma and slightly sweet aftertaste, mugicha has a unique flavour.

Completely caffeine free, but with a roasted flavour why not try it as an alternative to coffee.

Just add one of the tea bags to a litre of water (either hot or cold) and leave to steep. You’ll have a pitcher of barley tea that the whole family can enjoy.

How to Make Perfect Mugicha:

  1. Add a tea bag to a litre of water, hot or cold.
  2. If using hot water steep for 10 minutes. If using cold water steep for 1 hour.
  3. Sit back and enjoy your tea!
