tin review time: Hanagara

First off, a note to everyone waiting for packages from me: short story, I'm sick, everything's on hold. There's more details on my pick-up post.

Next, I thought I'd like to do more in-depth posts of my tins. Eventually I'd like to review all of them, but that'll probably never happen, since I keep buying more. ^^; I'd love for there to be a comprehensive database of all the tins someday... not enough to do it myself, though. XD

Anyway, first is the recently released tin called "Hanagara", or flower pattern!



name: Hanagara
size: 12.5cm tall, 7.8cm diameter
featured Pokémon: Pikachu
release date: March 2015
contents: plain cookies (5), matcha cookies (5)



visual review:
This is a very cute, eye-catching tin using bold colors and traditional Japanese design elements. It features a wrap-around design with Pikachu in various poses. It's the same size in diameter as the Kokeshi tin, but a little bit shorter. And the two look fabulous together. Unfortunately, I have no place uncluttered enough that I can take a picture of their awesomeness, but if you're using the Kokeshi tin as a decoration, then I REALLY recommend getting this one to go with it.

physical review:
The tin is made of steel and is very sturdy. The lid fits quite snugly.



edible review:
The wrappers for these are almost too nice to open! And okay, confession time: I really don't like matcha. But the matcha flavor in these cookies was very light and pleasant. I actually ended up liking them better than the plain cookies, which I thought had a slightly odd flavor to them. They were good dipped in lemon tea, though!
