Let’s move on to drinks found in Japan. Mugicha is basically a tea-like drink infused with roasted barley grains. It is smooth, with a nutty flavor without the bitterness of tea leaves. It is also caffeine-free. People in Japan enjoy it served cold during summer. It is drank to prevent heat exhaustion. But it is also available during the winter, and served warm. You don’t even have to go to a restaurant to get it, there are vendo machines that have both the hot and cold versions. Do give it a try in Japan.
