I don't know where my time went; it is already February. I have been very busy with many things. I am moving the website to a new platform. I have always wanted to give my customers a discount code but I could never do it on my current platform. New version will also give me a full e-commerce basket capability. So, you don’t need to leave the website to checkout your products elsewhere. I hope to roll it out soon. How about you? What fun activities have you been doing? My daughter was reading her magazine about Hina matsuri, Dolls Festival, or Girl's day festival. I thought it might be interesting for some of you. It is on March 3rd to pray for girls 'growth and happiness. What a nice festival specifically for girls? People display dolls just like above in their houses.

Superstition says that leaving the dolls past March 4th will result in a late marriage for the daughter. Awww...
Houjicha is a type of green tea. It is roasted thus changing its property from fresh grassy aroma to earthy tone. It generally is served in Japanese restaurants because it is more neutral to go along with all dishes. Unfortunately, after being roasted, antioxidant level has been reduced but it is not disappeared. Our Houjicha is directly from a family tea farm whose has been producing tea for 7 generation (approximately, 600 years of production!). It is also USDA certified organic.
Our Chocolate tea has always been popular because it gives such a good aroma. Recently, a customer said it smells just like"Godiva" Chocolatier. Yum! Treat yourself with a good Chocolate Tea or buy for someone you care. High in caffeine with black tea to help you energize.
