“Tokachi-kawanishi Nagaimo Chiffon Koucha (Tea)” is produced by “Rokkatei”, a confectionery maker in Hokkaido. Their signature “Marusei Butter Sand” is one of the best and popular omiyage in Hokkaido.
“Tokachi-kawanishi Nagaimo” is a kind of yam made in the Tokachi region in Hokkaido. The large temperature difference between day and night makes the yam smooth and snow-white with a viscous texture.
The unique thing about chiffon cakes is that they are made without leavening. The yam acts as a rising agent, producing the fluffy yet firm texture.
The phrase on the box, “The best product made with the best conscience”, shows their motto of food safety first.
This pillowy and moist chiffon contains Earl Gray tea leaves with a refreshing and zesty fragrance.
Each cake is sold in a box at 500 yen.
Pleasant aroma of tea fills the air.
The sponge is heavenly fluffy and chewy. The Tokachi yam gives this unique texture.
Give it a try especially if you love tea.
As it is mildly sweet, dressing it up with some whipped cream is strongly recommended.
