On 1st October this year, we celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, a joyous occasion for family reunion. Legend tells us that Chang'e, the Moon Goddess of Immortality, sacrificed herself for her husband on the 15th of the 8th month of the lunar calendar, creating the custom of praying to the moon on this very day.
As the festival nears, we've looked for ways to make this occasion more special. The round shape of mooncakes symbolizes completeness and reunion, and the sharing of mooncakes between family members represents the unity of families. At Matchaya, we highly value our family - our staff, and our customers. Thus, our special mini tea mooncakes were created in four flavours: Uji Matcha, Sakura Royal Milk Tea, Kurogoma (black sesame) & Shirogoma (white sesame), & Kumamoto Purple Sweet Potato (with melon seeds).
What better way to enjoy Mid-Autumn with your friends and family than with our mini tea mooncakes - best shared amongst everyone!
