This snack is a traditional Japanese wagashi or confection called warabi mochi. While warabi mochi is typically flavored with kinako (roasted soybean flour), this one features matcha powder made from Uji matcha.
Warabi mochi is a kind of Japanese mochi that is made with warabi (bracken) starch as opposed to rice flour. It has more of a gelatinous texture, but is also quite cooling which is why it’s such a popular dessert in Japan.
Included in this set is a slab of Uji matcha-flavored warabi mochi with a kinako matcha infused powder. To enjoy this dessert, all you have to do is cut the warabi mochi into your desired-shaped pieces, and sprinkle the included powder on top. If you’d like to enjoy this confection cold, we recommend chilling it in the refrigerator (before sprinkling the powder on top.)
Enjoy the traditional and reminiscent flavors of matcha and kinako, and instantly be transported to Uji, Kyoto with this dessert.
