Product Description

There are many variations as to how the moon festival came about. However there is one story which seems to be the most popular, evolves around a princess and an archer. Legend has it, during King Yao's rule, ten suns appeared in the sky. The heat from these 10 suns endangered crops, wildlife and the very existence of people. King Yao asked a famous archer named Houyi to shoot down nine of the ten suns. After shooting the 9 extra suns down, archer Houyi asked for the hand of the Emperor's beautiful daughter, Chang E, as a reward. Houyi took good care of Chang E but she remained indifferent to him, always considering herself the most beautiful woman in the world. Meanwhile, the king was worried the extra suns would appear again and cause a new disaster, so he gave Houyi a pill that was said to ensure immortality. But Chang E learned of this pill and decided she could make better use of it herself. So she swallowed the pill and immediately started floating into the air. She soon reached the moon, where she remains, transformed into a toad as punishment. Leaving poor Houyi to see only the shadow of his vain wife and only when the moon is full.

 

The 15th day of the eighth lunar month marks the Mid-Autumn Festival, also known as the Chinese Moon Festival, a time for family members and loved ones to come together and enjoy the full moon. Mooncake is a traditional reminder of family reunion, the authenticity of all ingredients collaborate dedication to this festive delicacy.
