Sakura Mochi, Dango, and Kashiwa Mochi at Tamon Tea, Berkeley USA

Sakura Mochi 桜餅 ~$2.5
Red Bean Paste inside of Sakura Mochi
Tamon Tea is a Japanese Snack Shops located in Berkeley. (right across Berkeley City College) They have various Japanese treats such as Sakura Mochi (imported from Hokkaido, Japan) Dango, Kushi Mochi, Yokan, etc. 

Owner of the store imported their Sakura Mochi from Hokkaido Japan. What is most surprising is that you are supposed to eat the leaves along with the mochi too. The leave is sakura leaves and it is pickled and well prepared for eating. Inside the mochi, there is sweet red bean paste. The overall of this sweet is AMAZING! I really wish I can enjoy this mini treat while viewing Sakura blossom in Japan. 

Dango 団子 $2
Kashiwa Moch かしわ餅 i: Mochi with red bean filling, wrapped with Oak leaf. $2-2.5
For Kashiwa Mochi, DON'T EAT THE LEAVE!! You don't want to know what I did. :(
