Barley tea is actually made from a roasted grain brewed to perfection from barley, featuring a unique toasty flavor. Commonplace in Asian households, you’ll find this cold beverage being enjoyed year-round for its invigorating flavor and calming properties. The feel-good drink of the moment, enjoy the Mint flavor to cleanse the body and reduce stress. It's richly filled with antioxidants and Vitamins A and C, aiding overall physical health.
As the name implies, we expertly roast grains until they are caramel and chocolate in color to produce our delicious roasted grain teas, with notes of nutty, sweet aroma. This involves taking the most common and traditional ingredient, roasted barley, or corn, and blending it with organic ingredients that complement the deep flavor of our grains while remaining caffeine free. Inaka is then cold brewed and bottled to bring this beautiful beverage directly to your doorstep in the form of our traditional barley tea, or our barley tea with a twist, with either ginger or mint. Any way you slice it, our teas give you several savory coffee alternatives that are both refreshing and beneficial.
Inaka (ee-nah-kah) comes from a Japanese word meaning countryside. We chose the name to honor the place where our founder first tried and fell in love with roasted grain teas in the beautiful and serene mountains of Northern Japan. It’s also a nod to our Mississippi roots and a slower pace of life, nostalgia, and hospitality. As you can see, it’s more than a place. Rather a state of mind where you’re relaxed, fulfilled, and feeling at home as you find your Inaka.

Short answer, yes. Barley tea (aside from our Ginger Corn Tea that you can safely enjoy!) is not gluten-free and should be avoided by those with Celiac disease. However, since Barley tea is much less processed, it’s less irritating to those on a gluten-free diet and we leave it up to your discretion.
Corn tea boasts tremendous benefits. Ours is made with ginger to help reduce inflammation, induce calmness, and boost immunity. It’s the functional beverage that can be enjoyed daily for optimum health benefits.
The list is long and plentiful! The benefits feature barley tea melatonin superpowers to aid sleep and relaxation, especially at bedtime since it's a naturally caffeine free tea. Add to that mental clarity and help with digestion, and you’re bound to feel better with each sip. Drink it any time of day, as frequently as you like. Relax and let peace surround you.
Mugicha is the Japanese word for roasted barley tea, a staple in Asian culture for its cooling effect on the body and its thirst-quenching benefits. It’s known as damaicha in Chinese and boricha in Korean.
Mugicha (Barley Tea) is naturally caffeine free and a great alternative to soda or coffee. For those enjoying the alcohol-free movement, think of it as the all-natural cocktail bursting with a sweet and nutty flavor to enjoy at any celebratory occasion.
