I was craving mugicha, and all I had was Lupicia’s with lychee flavor, which isn’t the same.
I ordered a 52-bag pack of big 10g bags for fridge steeping, then went ahead and just hot steeped one in my big mug. Served hot, it tastes like mugicha, and not much like coffee to me. Served iced, there’s a strong similarity to coffee, such that I also made an iced mocha with oat milk and chocolate syrup, mmm.
I wonder how much variation there is between brands of plain mugicha. I’ve yet to be disappointed by any.
