No, I’m not cursing, and you don’t need to say ‘gesundheit’! either…. Fukubukuro….are a wonderful Japanese tradition for the New Year. I got mine from Lupicia Tea. I first heard about these awesome “Happy Bags” last year, but was unable to get one and find out first hand how wonderful they are. This year, I knew about the bags in advance and made sure I was in a position to score one for my very own.
What a lovely variety! Eleven pouches of tea. Only one is clearly a gift for some lucky person, due to it’s being labeled “Earl Grey”. The rest sound good to me, so I cannot be sure how much sharing will occur. This WAS a Happy Bag, indeed! I wonder what other lovely surprises this new year will bring?
