Konpeito is a traditional candy that was introduced to Japan in the 15th and 16th centuries by European traders from Portugal. Its name is derived from the Portugues word “confeito,” meaning sugar candy. The star-like shape of Konpeito is developed after two weeks of diligent work by a skilled confectioner. We have added our high quality Matcha to produce a unique version of this snack loved by the Japanese people. Within the Imperial House of Japan, Konpeito is a traditional gift for wedding celebrations. The sweetness of this candy makes it a perfect snack to complement a hot cup of green tea.
