Kichizaemon Orchard × Hirokawa

We teamed up with Kichizaemon Orchard of Aomori prefecture, very far from Hirokawa, some 1600km apart, to produce two products using one of Hirokawa's famous harvest, Yame Tea.

​​

The first product we worked on is a jam. Apples of Kichizaemon Farm with Yame tea made in tricolole, red, white and green, or bi-color white and green, or red and green. It is still in the process of finalizing the recipe.

Another product is Cha-Miso. It is based on Bakke-Miso, a traditional food of Tugaru Region, made with Japanese butterbur mixed with Miso, or fermented soy beans. Instead of Japanese butterbur, we used Yame-tea paste, which has similar bitterness. It is very delicious and already receiving many requests for the sales. It is a best match to the rice, and also can be used as a spice as well.
