【英語】Wagashi : 和菓子。日本茶とともに、繊細な味覚と季節感を楽しもう!

“Wagashi” is Japanese traditional sweets, typically served with Japanese green tea.  These are commonly made of rice and wheat flours, azuki beans and other kinds of beans, sugar, starch syrup, some with eggs…
和菓子は日本の伝統的なお菓子です。主に、米、小麦、小豆、砂糖、水飴、ときに卵などを用いて造られます。

 

“Wagashi” are primarily intended as a complement to the taste of green tea, served at traditional tea ceremonies. Therefore, the beautiful appearance is admired as well as the taste. Quite often, the season of the year or the nature such as flowers, birds, the moon, etc… is expressed in its appearance.
Also, very healthy, as artificial flavors are rarely used so as not to affect the taste of tea.
和菓子はもともとお茶会の日本茶のお茶請として発展しました。季節感や花鳥風月が見た目で表現されていることが多く、その味はもとより見た目の美しさも大切です。また、お茶の風味を損なわないよう、人工的な香味料を用いていないので、とても健康的です。

 

If you have a chance to try them, please enjoy the delicate taste together with the artistic beauty of “Wagashi”!
是非、繊細な味覚とともに芸術的な美を楽しんでください!
