Houjicha EMAKI (modern Japanese confection)

This is limited edition only available in spring season.

Interior Content: 13 pieces

We at Hibiki-an typically offer traditional Japanese snacks, but here, we would like to introduce this modern confection made in Kyoto. The name of these sweets is "Houjicha EMAKI" meaning a scroll of Houjicha in Japanese. This is a baked and rolled crepe, filled with Houjicha cream. The harmony between the crisp, rolled crepe and exquisite Houjicha cream is a superb delight.

Houjicha, which is produced in Uji, Kyoto is included in this special Houjicha cream. Houjicha EMAKI is delicately made to bring out the refreshing and roasted flavor of Houjicha and its light brown color.

Houjicha EMAKI has a very light and crispy texture and roasted flavor of high quality Houjicha. It gives a burst of Houjicha flavor when eaten and makes your mouth full of joy. The light brown color of the cream and sophisticated appearance like an EMAKI scroll will fascinate you. The scroll represents the rich history of Houjicha, delightfully featured in the well-balanced taste of this modern confection.

It is quite difficult to retain the roasted flavor of high quality Houjicha, but through special care and following specific methods, it is possible. We specifically developed Houjicha EMAKI because they do retain the refreshing and roasted flavor and light brown color of high quality Houjicha, beautifully.

Houjicha EMAKI pair very well with all kinds of Japanese tea. We are certain that you will be pleased to have modern Houjicha sweets with roasted Houjicha flavor and quite unique and delicate texture for your enjoyment.
