Winter Treat

Toasted mochi or glutinous rice in a bowl of steaming hot adzuki beans is a winter treat. This is a sign at a coffee shop. This dessert is called oshiruko. Though the green box tells what kind of coffee the shop sells, this dessert would most likely be served with tea. (The information in the pink box above the bowl probably tells about it. I didn't photograph that part of the sign!)

These instant cups are sold at some grocery stores. I bought this for a friend who was in the hospital. All he had to do was add hot water. Not sure if it were good or not.
