The Mid-Autumn Festival also known as Moon Festival or Mooncake Festival, is a traditional festival celebrated by many East and Southeast Asian people. It is the second-most important holiday after Chinese New Year with a history dating back 3,000 years, when China's emperors worshipped the moon for bountiful harvests.
Lanterns of all shapes and size, are carried and displayed which symbolise the beacons that light people's path to prosperity and good fortune. Mooncakes, a rich pastry typically filled with egg yolk, sweet-bean or lotus-seed paste, are traditionally eaten during this festival. [Wikipedia]
Experience a new way to celebrate this years Mid-Autumn Festival with our hojicha infused "Fukamari"!
The roasted hojicha flavours will add further depth to the "Fukamari", while the rice umami of the warmed "Fukamari" will mellow out the bitterness and astringency of the hojicha. Creating harmony which offsets the richness of the mooncake.
