Big Sister went on a school trip to Kyoto recently. She brought these tea sweets to us. They have autumn decorations on them; a gingko leaf, a cosmos, a maple leaf, and a rabbit. I'm late posting them. We ate them a week or so ago. They are like gumdrops, but you're supposed to nibble on them while sipping tea. Tea sweets are really sweet. Maybe because the tea used in the ceremony can be a bit bitter.
