April 2021: Matcha Moments

Indulge in Elegant Matcha Sweets

Nothing can quite compare to the rich and bitter-sweet flavors of fresh Japanese matcha.

Originally brought into Japan by Esai in the late 12th century, matcha was first exclusively enjoyed by society's elite. But soon became intertwined with the traditional tea ceremony, and eventually becoming an integral part of Japanese culture.

This month we curated a matcha inspired box, but added some contrasting spring flavors, so you can enjoy the balanced flavor of Japanese spring.

Sakura Yunomi

By Japan Mag (Osaka)

Enjoy the refreshing feeling of spring all year round with this traditional Japanese yunomi cup. The gentle pink and orange coloring of the sakura motif make it a great partner for the Golden Plum tea. 



Golden Plum Tea x2

By Sekimoto Foods (Wakayama)

Enjoy a little luxury this spring. This sweet and sour plum tea features beautiful gold leaf. Enjoy watching the sparkling gold float, contrasting against the light pink tea, before taking a sip.

Matcha Azuki Waffle

By Confectionery Studio Sheri Coco (Ibaraki)

Enjoy the rich, sweet and traditional flavor combination of azuki red bean and matcha in this delightfully fluffy waffle. Try warming the waffle in a toaster to elevate this indulgent treat.

Matcha Mochi

By Tengudou (Hokkaido)

Made under the supervision of renowned green tea specialists Ujien - this fluffy and chewy matcha mochi gets sweeter the more you chew it. Please enjoy it slowly for the full experience.

Soft Milk & Strawberry Baumkuchen x2

By Daiyo Foods (Aichi)

A must try cake for everyone with a sweet tooth, this fluffy treat combines the flavors of milk and Japan-grown strawberries to create an elegant cake experience.

Sakura Karinto
