These bite-sized arare (crackers made from mochi or glutinous rice) showcase the beautiful bitter sweet flavors of Japanese matcha from Uji. The city of Uji is located just south of Kyoto and is the second oldest tea-growing region in Japan. Green teas from Uji, considered the most refined in Japan, became popular among Japanese nobility over 800 years ago and remain popular to this day. 

In its third generation, Kuramaan was established in 1931 by a founder who apprenticed under the famous okaki maker, Masuda Eishodo. To ensure the freshest taste, Kuramaan polishes only the required amount of mochi rice each day. It’s then steamed and pounded using the same methods from almost a century ago. Because of this, the rice has a natural sweetness, is fluffy and airy, and maintains its natural flavor when baked. The crackers are then flavored with the highest quality ingredients. The entire process is done by hand with the condition of the rice dough being constantly monitored.

Suggested use:Enjoy as is. Pairs well with a cup of houjicha or sencha (available in our Japanese Green & Specialty Teas: “Ryu” Care Package and as a single item purchase at our Market: Michi no Eki).
