Sweet Sakura Tea (4 Sachets)
Sweet Sakura Tea is a beautiful Japanese herbal tea that blooms in the water. Lots of effort went into developing this tea to preserve the beauty and flavor of the sakura. The flowers can only be harvested once a year, right before they bloom to ensure they have the strongest scent. Then they are carefully processed to avoid damaging the petals and preserve the flavor. When steeped in water, their wonderful aroma fills the air and the drink is lightly sweet, salty, and floral. It's a treat for the eyes and the tastebuds!
This drink is also called sakurayu and is enjoyed at Japanese wedding ceremonies, as the clear liquid symbolizes new beginnings.
As a tea: Warm a cup in advance, add cherry blossoms and 100ml of hot water, and steep for 1 minute.
You can also add these blossoms to light alcohols like white wine or sake to infuse them with sakura flavor or add them to baked sweets and jellies for a special treat.
