Wagashi: Kiku (Chrysanthemum) from Nerikiri dough.

Nerikiri dough is wrapped around a bean paste filling to create a sweet that looks like kiku, a flower that blooms in Autumn. Participants get to make three sweets, which should be consumed on the day that they are made. This time we use a microwave oven. We can make it easily.

Tea : Green tea or Houji tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.
