Reiwa Afternoon Tea at Cafe an-an!

My students and I went to eat amazing Japanese sweets at Cafe an-an in Portslade.

We had Japanese afternoon tea themed around Reiwa (令和), the new Japanese era which started on May 1st.

My favourite was the elderflower tempura (so good!) and 水信玄餅 mizu shingen mochi - the clear "raindrop" mochi.

Also, I learned that the Japanese word for elderflower is エルダーフラワー (erudaafurawaa).

Noriko-san, ありがとうございました! Thank you very much for having us!
