Matchaame Matcha Hard Candy from Kanto, Japan
These traditional Japanese sweets from Tokyo, relished for over two centuries, blend a crunchy texture with profound sweetness, exuding a subtle caramel scent. Crafted from select ingredients like high-grade granulated sugar and genuine mizuame (malt syrup) derived from Japanese sweet potatoes, each batch embodies quality. The unique character of ariheitō sweets emerges from a rigorous method of condensing these elements in copper pots, demanding exact timing; even a minute extra can result in an excessively strong caramel taste. This careful process exemplifies attention to detail, culminating in a perfect equilibrium of delicate flavors and an enticing caramel fragrance.
Eitarō Sōhonpō specializes in wagashi, a traditional Japanese sweet treat. With a history spanning over two centuries, originating in Edo, now known as Tokyo, Eitarō has gained recognition for their variety of flavorful hard candies. They adhere to strict quality control measures to maintain the authentic taste of their original formulations.
