Origins

Traditional mochi finds its roots in Japan, although the process of steaming glutinous rice flours first began in China! Mochi is a type of Japanese rice cake, and is usually found in a bite sized form. It's a chewy dessert often with a different flavoured centre, with ice cream being a popular filling. It was traditionally served at Japanese new year, and is made during a ceremony called Mochitsuki, where it is pounded by a wooden mallet!

Mochi is incredibly popular nowadays, and it deserves all the hype it receives! Here at Manhua Cha, we have a range of mochi brands for you to try today!
