I tried the May subscription and sampled the following:
This oyster sauce includes the whole oyster and puts the classic Lee Kum Kee oyster sauce I grew up with to shame.
This udon is made with a combination of five Japanese grains (black rice, glutinous barely flour, rice bran, red rice and brown rice), which lends itself to some beautifully coloured noodles.
This was by far the product I was most excited to try. Stay tuned for an upcoming recipe post! Yuzu is a citrus fruit from Japan and is one of my favourite flavours.

This care package was thoughtfully and beautifully curated. You can tell that love and care was put into each item. For a limited time you can get 10% off your first order with my code: PURPLECHIVES_10.
