I have to respectfully disagree with the previous reviews, even though I completely understand them. This tea is very much an acquired taste, made as it is with flavouring from a pickled cherry leaf. If brewed lightly it can be a very fresh and uplifting tea. When I lived in Japan, the pickled cherry leaves would be found around sakura mochi, and were one of my favourite things to eat – only available in the springtime. This tea captures that flavour excellently – a true Japanese spring feeling.

If you like it, I’d also recommend the even more unusual taste of the Ume vert, made from pickled japanese plums!
