Healthy Reasons to Love Barley Tea

Barley tea is a local, healthy alternative to high-calorie, sugary, caffeinated beverages! It has a delicious, soothing roasty nutty taste, and comforting popcorn aroma. Read on to see what makes it so healthy and unique:

1) No Caffeine: mo'mugi is naturally free of caffeine so it won't give you the jitters or dehydrate you. And you don't need to add anything to make it taste great, because it already does...naturally.
2) No Sugar: mo'mugi barley tea is a sugar-free, natural drink, making it a great option for people who are trying to maintain a healthy weight or lose weight. Unlike other sugary beverages, including juices, kombucha, and sports drinks, since it doesn't contain any natural or added sugar or colourings, it's a healthier option.

3) Ultra Hydrating: Barley tea is a great way to stay hydrated, as it increases blood circulation faster than water, as stated in the Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology. You can drink it all day long like a delicious flavoured water, without getting bored and without worrying about caffeine, sugar, or calories. And it's a fantastic hangover helper.

4) Contains Antioxidants: Barley tea provides antioxidants, as outlined in The Semantic Scholar, which help to protect your body against damage from free radicals. This can help to reduce your risk of chronic diseases. Thumbs up to that!

5) Promotes Digestive Health: Barley tea contains compounds that can help to improve your digestive health. According to the study in the The Japan Food Journal, it soothes stomach inflammation.

6) Won't stain your teeth: Barley tea, unlike other teas and coffee, does not contain tannins which can leave your drink too bitter to enjoy, and stain your pearly whites. In fact, the enzymes in roasted barley tea have anti-adhesive properties that can protect against plaque, as stated in the  Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Hooray!
7)  mo'mugi teabags are award-winning, plant-based, and free of plastics and adhesives. You can compost them in your municipal composter.

) Sustainable from start to finishWe have a small carbon footprint as we  source our organic barley locally. And our pouch packaging is converted into fuel at Recycle BC Depots. For other provinces, inquire at your local recycling centre to see how they handle pouch packaging. 
9) Super Easy to Make: iced mo'mugi barley tea is so easy to make at home or on the go. Simply add a couple teabags to a pitcher of cold water directly and steep in the fridge. It doesn't get any easier than that. No faffing around with boiling water first and worrying about pouring it into glass or plastic.
10) Great Value: At less than 50¢ per cup, mo'mugi is a super convenient and cost-effective option for people who want to enjoy a healthy beverage without breaking the bank. AND we lowered our prices to help with inflation pain.

So what are you waiting for? Give mo'mugi a try today, in single-serve packs or by the case! 😊
