The blending of a standard Sencha with a collection of fresh Sakura cherry blossoms is something I found surprising the first time I saw it, but given the love of the Sakura blossoms and associated festivals in Japan, I shouldn’t have.

This delicately balanced tea is lightly astringent which I didn’t expect so much, but doesn’t detract from the taste much. The floral-but-still-cherry flavor is distinct and memorable.

This isn’t like a “sour cherry” tea you may get from somewhere else. This blend is light and flavorful, but not particularly aromatic. For an additional level of aroma I would either use maybe a 1/2 teaspoon of extra loose material or steep an extra 30 seconds.

This is a great blend for fans of Sencha teas looking for a bit of a changeup. I also think fans of Jasmine green teas will really enjoy this tea.
