KAWARA SENBEI (traditional Japanese cracker)

This is limited edition only available in spring season.

Interior Content: 12 pieces (2 pieces x 6 packs)

KAWARA means roofing tiles in Japanese. Our SENBEI have been shaped in the form of Japanese tiles seen on traditional homes in Japan. It is said that KAWARA SENBEI were introduced about 1200 years ago in Japan. They have subtle sweetness and addictive toasted taste and brittle texture. We hope you will try these traditional Japanese SENBEI!

KAWARA SENBEI have a brittle texture and are not so sweet, but slightly sweet. When you take a bite, the toasted and sweet flavor spreads in your mouth. KAWARA SENBEI have such a simple, wholesome taste, familiar to many people in Japan through the ages. KAWARA SENBEI pair very well with all kinds of Japanese tea, and are rather addictive. They are so delicious that it is quite impossible to eat only one.

Beautiful designs of Japanese scenes and flowers have been carefully drawn on KAWARA SENBEI. It is said that drawing some designs on roofing tiles originated from historical fact. BUSHOH military commander at the SENGOKU warring states period drew his family crest on pieces of tile and gave the pieces as a reward to his retainers who achieved significant results.

You will enjoy 3 designs: Mt. Fuji, SAKURA cherry blossoms, and MOMIJI Japanese maple. We believe KAWARA SENBEI will be pleasing to your eye, as well as to your palate, creating an authentic Japanese atmosphere.

We are certain that you will be pleased to have our KAWARA SENBEI with our Japanese tea.
