Our most beautiful tea yet –
Delight yourself in the fullness of Spring with our Sakura Sencha.
This gorgeous blend provides an exquisite experience, perfectly combining the bright flavor of natural sencha with the sweet aroma of whole sakura blossoms into a cup of floral harmony. Drinking this tea is a moment of peace and serenity, a delicate blend of beauty and taste that celebrates the glory of spring. Let this elegant and enchanting tea elevate your daily sip.
In Japan, Hanami (花見, "flower viewing") is a yearly, highly-anticipated tradition of basking in the glory of nature – particularly by just being present and sitting under vast sakura, or cherry blossom trees with family and friends. If you can't make it to a cherry tree this spring, let this tea bring the essence of Hanami into your home.
Aroma: Spring in full bloom! Deep, rounded cherry blossom.
Flavor: Fresh umami layered with sweet, smooth cherry blossom. Pure spring in a cup with a long finish.
Harvest Season: May
Cultivar: Yabukita and Yae-zakura (the popular double-layered cherry blossom variety that can have more than 5 petals per flower!)
Process: the sencha is shaded for a few days to increase sweetness. The tea is then lightly steamed, rolled, and dried. Sakura blossoms and fresh spring leaves are painstakingly harvested by hand, dried, and then carefully blended into the sencha.
Amount: 5g (2tsp)
Water: 180ml (6oz) of 165ºF water. For the second steep, try brewing at 175º F.
