Ochazuke is a simple and satisfying staple of home cooking in Japan. Composed of steamed rice covered in tea or dashi (umami-rich broth) with an assortment of savory ingredients, it is similar to a soupy rice porridge and is often eaten as a quick and easy meal. This instant ochazuke packet makes enjoying this delightful dish even easier. Simply add the contents of the packet to a small bowl of white rice, mix with hot water, and enjoy the warm, comforting dish. 

The base flavors for this ochazuke seasoning come from the dashi and matcha granules, giving the broth a mellow earthiness. Dried umeboshi adds a hint of tart tanginess while konbu (kelp), wakame seaweed and nori (roasted seaweed) impart a pleasant umami flavor. Arare (glutinous rice cracker pieces) add an exciting bit of texture in contrast to the soft tea-steeped rice.

With over 70 years of experience in the seafood industry, Yamahei Fisheries, in combination with Mika Corporation, strives to create high-quality dashi-based products. Their commitment to tradition and quality earned them the Yellow Ribbon Medal of Honor, bestowed by the emperor of Japan for diligent work in industries and agriculture, in 2006.

Suggested uses: Pour the contents of the ochazuke packet over a small bowl of cooked white rice (leftover rice works great) and add 150ml (about ⅔ cup) of hot water. Mix to distribute the seasoning and enjoy!
