Staff Pick Notes

Enter the Dragon Kingdom

Made in Katsuyama City, aka “The Dinosaur Kingdom," Hannya Tou is a guilty little pleasure with a delightful dual personality. The initial impression is sweet and mellow as the aromas lead you into believing you are about to experience a typical dessert sipper. And that is indeed where you start. But then Hannya Tou smoothly--even sneakily--morphs into a chili pepper spiciness that spreads across your palate with enough assertiveness to take you by surprise while bringing an involuntary smile to your lips. The warmth flows down your throat leaving only the occasional whisper of the initial plum sweetness that lured you in. You won’t soon forget Hannya Tou once you’ve enjoyed your first encounter. The memory will linger with you. Like visions of sugar plums…very naughty sugar plums. Please. May I have another? Oh yeah…
