Shichimi Togarashi, the Japanese “seven-spice blend” largely credited to a Tokyo spice shop dating back to the 17th century, combines sansho pepper and dried red chilies with other key ingredients. Our special chukara – or medium-heat – blend rounds out the dominant flavors of sansho pepper and chilies with ingredients such as fragrant dried orange peel. This piquant, peppery mixture is excellent with soups and noodle dishes as well as grilled meats.
Shichimi Togarashi now also comes in our special Longevity jar made of thick, durable, unique glass which blocks out damaging light that causes decay. This airtight, light-proof jar blocks out harmful air, moisture, and light, protecting our spices and preserving their freshness. Our Longevity jar not only looks beautiful and elegant, but it's also completely reusable, eco-friendly, and will last for years. All spices in the Longevity collection come in refill packs, so you only need to get the Longevity jar once for each spice and then just get the refill packs when the spice runs out, reducing waste and creating a sustainable solution for your kitchen.
