These steamed cakes are made primarily from white bean paste with a small amount of wheat and rice flour. Matcha flavors the green layer with a few candied adzuki beans representing the "seeds" of spring. The flavor is delicate; not too sweet. The branded design is of Horsetail shoots, or Knotweed, which the Japanese forage for in the spring and is a seasonal culinary treat.
