One of the features of Japanese traditional confectionery is showing the season in advance.
And it does not only delight your taste buds but it is also pleasing for the eyes.
At a Uji tea’s specialty shop, Itohkyuemon’s main shop’s tea room in Uji City, Kyoto,
where is famous for Matcha (green powdered tea),
has started to serve seasonal “Hydrangea Parfait” since the other day.

The color is so gentle and delicate, which looks as if hydrangea blooms in rain
in front of your eyes.
It looks too good to eat, doesn’t it? (H.S)
