Wagashi -- traditional Japanese sweets -- capture seasonality and imagery of nature in their aesthetics. They are served before the bowl of matcha that concludes even the most elaborate kaiseki meal. The specialty wagashi tools Gusta sources are from reputable makers. They exhibit the craftsmanship that is respected also in wagashi making.
Many products we sell at Gusta Supplies are exactly what we use in class -- authentic ingredients and professional-grade tools used in high end hotels and restaurants. We hope you enjoy using these products as much as our chefs favour them.
