by Umami Mart Staff

If you know us – even if just from reading our blog or visiting our shop – you probably know we have a thing for condiments. Seasonings, spices, sauces, herbs, syrups, and other flavor enhancers make the world a better place. Needless to say, we always have lots of condiments on hand.

Diamonds + Gold: A New Take on an Old Fashioned

by Umami Mart Staff

We love the restrained refinement of gold-rimmed glassware. A touch of bling adds just the right amount of ornamentation without going overboard. Our newest glasses up the bling times two – diamond cut glass and gold edging along the lip – but are still tasteful and elegant. In fact, we think the Toyo-Sasaki Diamond Cut Old […]

This Just In: Hard Strong Diamond Cut Sake Glass

by Umami Mart Staff

A high quality sake deserves a high quality vessel to complement and showcase its flavor. You wouldn’t drink a fine single-malt whiskey from a Dixie cup, would you?
