From TWG Tea Company

An ode to spring, this fragrant TWG blend evokes Kyoto’s most celebrated season. A scattering of cherry blossoms and green tea yields a most aromatic and elegant fragrance.

Avoid this tea at all costs! When I opened the tin, I was greeted with an overpowering smell of rose. Sure enough, the ingredients on the bottom list tea and rose, even though the tea is described as containing “a scattering of cherry blossoms.” All cheap “cherry” teas contain rose, but I was expecting more for this price. Also, the green tea in the blend is a mediocre tea sourced from Singapore, not Japanese sencha. Shame on TWG for marketing this tea as a gourmet Japanese cherry tea.

The dry leaf smells sweet and of cherry.

Accidentally left this for a little bit to talk to my sister.

Brew smells slightly savoury with a hint of cherry (not as strong as dry).

The taste is slightly mineral, wouldn’t say vegetal or buttery. A sweet cherry comes about slightly in the after taste, mostly as I breathe out. Quite slight. I think it would be more noticeable with a second steep.

Edit: Accidentally forgot about it, and it went cold. The cherry is much more noticeable cold. Mmm very nice.

I love this tea! It tastes exactly like sakura when you steep it properly. I drink this when I crave for the sakura jelly (with real sakura inside) that I bought in Japan.

Here’s how I prepare this tea:

1. Pour 1/4 cup of 80c water on 1 tbsp of Sakura! Sakura! tea. Steep for 15 secs.
2. Drain the water. You won’t be needing it.
3. Pour 1 cup of 85c water on the strained tea leaves. Steep for 1m15s.

I add sugar to enhance the flavor of the cherry blossoms. And yes, you’ll definitely taste the sakura MORE when the tea is colder.
