A set of four kinds of karinto (a sweet, deep-fried Japanese snack) and shincha (“new tea”). Enjoy the crisp, light texture of karinto alongside a gentle cup of aromatic green tea. Sencha Hakuro Sencha is one of the most popular types of tea in Japan, made from leaves from the upper part of the tea bush. The highly prized shincha is the “new tea” that is picked from the first harvest in spring, and is typically sweeter than tea from the harvests that follow. Sencha Hakuro is Kiraritomiya’s most popular type of sencha, and pairs wonderfully with sweets. Kurokari Enjoy the new sensation of ultra-thin karinto, made by craftsmen who condense them as thinly as possible to make it crispy and crunchy. Okinawan brown sugar (“kokuto”) is mixed in at just the right proportion to give this Kurokari karinto an elegant texture. Once you try it, you will not be able to stop eating it! Gomasuri-kun Using plenty of black sesame and mineral-rich rock salt, craftsmen carefully season each piece of karinto. As you chew, the sesame aroma and flavor spreads and intensifies. We hope you will enjoy the fusion of nostalgia and novelty in the texture and taste. Kurokaridono Okinawan brown sugar and carefully-selected powdered kombu (kelp), give this karinto an elegant texture. The sweetness of the brown sugar and the saltiness of the kelp bring out the exquisite flavor of this new style of karinto. Norihei-sama Using plenty of domestically produced "aosa" (a type of green algae or “sea lettuce”), this product is extremely thin with a crispy and crunchy texture. Contrary to the conventional belief that karinto must always be hard and sweet, Norihei-sama is light and crisp, with a balance of salty and sweet flavors.
