What drink did this restaurant give me 2018/1/14 19:54
I'm at a relatively small restaurant in Shibuya and when I was seated I was handed a glass with some light brown liquid, and long table had several jugs of it being regularly topped up. When I watched a new jug being made, the man filled about 1/10th of the jug with black liquid and the rest with water. What is it?

Was the taste a bit roasted? If so, it might have been barley tea. Itfs called mugicha in Japanese and widely available. If you want to taste it again (or compare the taste to what you did drink just ask in a combine for gmugichah. There are different uses that all taste a bit differently, but I personally like the all ;-)

Enjoy your stay in Japan!

Ah, mugicha. One of the pleasing facts of Japanese restaurants that it's served refreshingly iced even during cold weather.
