Vegetables UMAMI pour-over dashi (drip filter included)
A completely new experience! Prepare vegetable dashi using the pour-over method like with coffee.
Five kinds of vegetables including onion, carrot, celery, potato, and ginger have been slowly dried over time to seal in their natural umami flavors.
By combining these ingredients with dried young bluefin tuna flakes in the drip, you can enjoy the delicate flavors and mellow taste of the resulting dashi that resembles a patiently simmered soup.
How to prepare delicious dashi using the pour-over method
Ingredients (for 1 person)
・1 packet of “Vegetable UMAMI hand-drip dashi”
・200ml of water

Again, first time using this, so not too experienced with it, but I am liking how it came out so far.
Easy to use, professional restaurant-quality UMAMI dashi! You can easily extract delicious umami, or the "savoriness", from vegetables simply as brewing coffee. The vegetable/tuna stock comes in transparent yellowish color with a robust, orchestra of tastes. This is perfect for any Japanese cuisine including udon, soba, miso soup, etc. I made udon out of this stock and it tasted awesome!
This item contains no MSG or preservatives.
On the downside, this product is a little expensive as each cup would cost as much as $6.00. Also, even though the dripping is fun and easy, it's still time-consuming compared to toss in a regular broth cube. I still like the product, but it is something to consider if you are to buy the product.
This is a very interesting item! You can extract delicious vegetable soup using an included paper filter. As there was no instruction in English, I needed to decipher what was written in Japanese, but I think the instruction is straightforward: (1.) you mix the contents of two pouches together, put it in the filter, then top it with dried tuna flake. (2.) Pour boiled water, let it settle for 10 seconds. (3.) Pour the rest of the hot water in a circular motion a couple of times as if you are brewing coffee.
The kit makes 200ml (6.76fl.oz) of delicious vegetable stock soup. The taste of the soup is fabulous! I can taste the sweet vegetable taste with a hint of tuna flake. You can use this stock for many recipes including pasta, casseroles, grains, gravy, and even salad dressing. But, I simply like to serve it as a vegetable soup after adding a pinch of salt given the layer of taste it has.
For downside, this product has a relatively short shelf life and can make only a cup of stock. Also, this product contains tuna fish and not vegan friendly.
