TANSAN SENBEI is a traditional Japanese cracker with a crunchy texture, subtle sweetness and simple, gentle flavor. Because of this gentle taste, it is the best Japanese cracker to match with our high quality Japanese green tea.

TANSAN means carbonated water, and the name comes from the fact that it was originally made using carbonated water from hot springs. In modern times, it has become a generic term for crackers with a light and fluffy texture. It doesn't have the characteristic fizz of sparkling water.

TANSAN SENBEI is an additive-free food and popular among people of all ages in Japan. It is made by mixing eggs, wheat flour, and rice flour with fresh natural water. Because it is a simple pastry, it is made with special attention to the amount of water and the baking time.

Hinodeya Seika, which manufactures TANSAN SENBEI cracker, is a long-established company founded in 1957. TANSAN SENBEI is one of Hinodeya Seika's most famous confections, and the ingredients and manufacturing process have been carefully passed down from generation to generation. Hinodeya Seika is located in the Yunoyama hot springs in the town of Komono, Mie Prefecture. There was a time when TANSAN SENBEI was sold by hand on pillion cars in this Yunoyama hot springs town.

The important factor of the popularity of this product is the cute retro packaging cans that have remained unchanged since its launch. After enjoying the crackers, the cans are often reused in households to hold different items. Even if you have never actually eaten this cracker, many people in Japan have seen this cute retro can. Recently, the design of these retro cans is very popular, and limited edition crackers are released with new designs by avant-garde artists.

TANSAN SENBEI cracker has been enjoyed for many years and has won numerous confectionery awards in Japan for its taste and popularity. Try this cracker that has been enjoyed in Japan for centuries with high quality green tea. Once you experience the taste, you are sure to become a repeat customer of TANSAN SENBEI cracker.
