MAME means beans. These Matcha MAME are a traditional bean confection made of fried fava beans sweetened with a little sugar and covered generously with high-quality Matcha from Uji, Kyoto. When you take a bite of this moderately chewy confection, you will experience the mild sweetness and the rich flavor of Matcha.

These Matcha MAME are a traditional confection that have been manufactured for many years in Kyoto by a long-established specialty store that has been in business for 100 years. The fried fava beans are carefully sprinkled with sugar and Matcha by skilled confectioners. The exquisite seasoning, which cannot be achieved by mass production by machine, is backed by the skills of experienced confectioners and traditional methods.

The approximately 2cm (0.79 inch) sized fava beans are moderately chewy, with a natural sweetness and the rich flavor of Matcha. The modest sweetness of sugar first spreads in your mouth, and as you keep chewing, the beans' natural sweetness is revealed. Finally, the rich flavor of the Matcha takes over. Matcha MAME are quite addictive. If you try one bite, you will find that it is difficult to stop eating them. Matcha MAME pair well with any tea, but are especially good with Houjicha and Sencha.

Beans rich in protein, combined with high-quality Matcha, have positive health benefits. In Japan, beans have been said to ward off evil spirits, since ancient times, and are a food of good fortune. Even if you don't like beans, you should try Matcha MAME. The excellent flavor will delight your palate and enrich your green moment.
