Afternoon tea

IMG_8350

Japanese sweets called wagashi are traditionally served in tea ceremonies. They’re usually made of rice flour and red bean and are always so kirei (pretty). If you go to a store that makes these sweets, women in kimono will bring you a small cup of macha (powdered Japanese green tea) to drink while you are tasting the different varieties. The pink one is a cherry-blossom shaped wafer encasing cherry-blossom jelly, and the white one has red bean jelly inside.
