Boukun Haba no Tane 3 Years Aged Habanero Kanzuri

Tohato Inc. has launched "Tyrant Haba Seed, 3 Years Aged Habanero Kanzuri" this year. It’s frighteningly spicy. Will you dare try them?

“Tyrant Habanero Seed, 3 Years Aged Habanero Kanzuri" uses spicy "Habanero Kanzuri" (かんずり, a seasoning from the Joetsu-Myoko Area of Niigata Prefecture), which is made by mixing local Habanero chilis with citrus, yuzu, and salt. Everything is aged and fermenting for more than 3 years. 

It’s a persimmon seed snack (kapi-pi) made with a fragrant and mellow spiciness. The name comes from the fact that the pieces of senbei look like a seed (種, tane) of the persimmon (柿, kaki). It was coated with spicy soy sauce and finished with bright red pepper chips. The manufacturer gives it a 5 on their spiciness scale.

The sweet and sour, refreshing taste of lemon juice is a classic product with a new design full of white polka dots on a black background.
