I certainly need more time to get to know more about each and everyone of them.
"Wagashi (和菓子) is a traditional Japanese confectionery which is often served with tea, especially the types made of mochi, azuki bean paste, and fruits.
Wagashi is typically made from natural based (mainly plant) ingredients.
The names used for wagashi commonly fit a formula—a natural beauty and a word from ancient literature;
they are thus often written with hyōgaiji (kanji that are not commonly used or known), and are glossed with furigana." extracted from wikipedia.org
What i liked about WAGASHI is NOT about the taste, but the visual effect of it.
I liked its simplicity and minimul fuss of the overall presentation, nothing fussy.
And there are so many types of it. After reading through wikipedia.org, it has more than 20 types.
Wagashi are also categorised into 3 classifications:
~ Wet confectionary ~ Half wet confectionary ~ Dry confectionary
For teasers, check out some of the interesting websites and blogs i found over the web about the above subject.
