Unique Japanese flavours you got to try!
Have you been craving Japanese sweets and confections as much as we have? We really cannot wait to be back in an enchanting machiya in Kyoto, drinking matcha and tasting the wonderous sweet delicacies of wagashi.. 😋 This is why we instantly fell in love with Yumiko's chocolate truffles, as the distinct flavours immediately took us back to our favourite Japanese sweetshop💞 Yumiko is originally from Japan's Nagano Prefecture, located near Matsumoto Castle. She has been creating sweets for nearly 20 years, both in Tokyo and in London! She started her own OKASHI to Sweets business about 3 years ago, hoping to introduce to everyone all over the world how lovely, cute, beautiful and tasty Japanese "okashi" (sweets) are, using her experience, skills and passion🥰 Yumiko's original hand-made chocolate truffle flavours are:
Matcha au Lait ( Japanese Green Tea )
Yuzu ( delicious Japanese Citrus ) & Caramel Milk Chocolate
Sake Ruby Chocolate
Sakura Liquor ( Japanese Cherry Blossom )
Lychee Milk Tea
Black Sesame Each box contains two truffles of each flavour. We had quite a few to 'taste-test' (😉) and while we loved all of them, our favourite flavour was the Matcha au Lait! We'd love to know which one was your (and your gift recipient's) favourite too!
Gift-wrapped by hand with care, using Snowflower furoshiki
A furoshiki is a traditional Japanese cloth that is folded like origami to wrap precious items. The brilliance of furoshiki is that it can be reused over and over again, which makes it a great eco-friendly alternative to the standard wrapping paper. You can use furoshiki as part of a gift, so the gift receiver can in turn reuse the furoshiki for their next gift-giving occasion, creating a cycle of giving. Of course, the gift receiver can also decide to keep their quality Kyoto furoshiki as a momento and use in many ways - as home decor, a hair-tie, a furoshiki book-wrap, etc. Lots of ideas for furoshiki wrapping can be found in our Furoshiki Tutorials and we also offer a Furoshiki Handbook too!
Your Japanese chocolate truffle box will be ready-wrapped by Cathy from the Zusetsu team with extra care, exactly as shown in the photo above. Our Snowflower furoshiki are especially fitting for the Christmas season, as the wintry design was inspired in part by winter snow on the first plum blossom in Kyoto. Snowflower was designed in-house in the Cotswolds and then traditionally screen-printed by hand in Kyoto. You can discover how special Snowflower is here!
