Tamari is a powerful Japanese soy sauce made from soybeans and koji (a unique Japanese fungus). Soy sauce is by far the most important ingredient in Japanese cuisine. Once you have tried this seasoning, you are sold. The aroma is powerful yet refined. What you taste is authentic and utterly Japanese. The most special? In tamari you will find all five flavor components at once: sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami! Tamari is multi-purpose. You can really do it through anything. Season rice or noodles with it, in stews or stir-fries, marinate meat or fish with it or use it as a dipping sauce with sushi. The possibilities are endless.
