Tea time with a memory of Yonezawa sweets
A souvenir is essential for ending a fulfilling a trip. Even after finishing the trip, by touching or eating souvenirs in your daily life, the time that you traveled will come back to you again, allowing you to feel refreshed. We have selected some sweet confectionery that girls love from amongst a variety of items. They are cute and healthy, and carry the distinct feel of Yonezawa. People know the history of Yonezawa from things like the fruity Koji soft drink, to Western sweets. Please enjoy the refreshing chamomile herbal tea blended with ukogi, which was recommended as “Katemono” by Uesugi Youzan, the 9th head of the Yonezawa Domain. We hope you will relax and have tea time with your family and friends while remembering your pleasant trip. * One box is for 2-3 people.
The Path to the Creation of this Souvenir
Cute and healthy--enjoy the tastes of Yonezawa from women’s point of view.
In the castle town of Yonezawa, there exists confectionery that craftsmen have continuously been refining their skills to make. There are various things, such as materials sensitive to the seasons, and things in which you can taste the quality of the ingredients, but as many of these items were perishable, they would not make good souvenirs. Therefore, we gathered items that were light and reasonable, had fancy packaging, and that women could easily pick up. One of the points of interest is that you can casually learn the history and climate of Yonezawa from the ingredients used in each item. We hope that your interest in Yonezawa will be deepened through tea time, and that you will visit again seeking other sweets.
Yonezawa’s sweets assortment set can easily be enjoyed by anyone.
