Strange, I don’t really taste much salt or brine at all. This comes across as a pleasant black tea, almost Darjeeling-like, quite crisp and refreshing. I expected a stronger taste of the salted cherry leaves but I can barely tell they’re present. Nice tea, inoffensive, just not as special as I expected. For the price, I expected something unique.

EDIT: After a few more steepings, I’ve nudged up the score a bit – if you put in a LOT of leaf, you get more of the sakura note, and then it’s better.
