The Adzuki Bean is the love bean. In ancient times, a man went away to war. His wife waited for him under a big tree on a high mountain. Till he returned, she missed him so much her flowing tears turned to blood. The bright blood drops became red seeds, and the seeds germinated and rooted, growing into a big tree full of red berries.

Slowly the red berries on the big tree joined with the wife's heartache, to become heart-shaped - the Adzuki Bean, the most beautiful bean in the world. Hard as a diamond, red as blood, shaped like a pulsating heart, glittering and transparent, dazzling the eyes. In China, the Adzuki Bean is precious like jade, and signifies spirituality and luck. It can always bring good luck in love.
Adzuki Bean Café & Restaurant wishes you the very best luck - in life as in love.
