This is a very tasty tea with little bitterness or astringency. The sakura cherry flavor profile is quite nice, if a little muted. I added sugar to this one and it really brings out the flavors nicely. I see Yunomi is now out of stock on this item. I would definitely buy this one again, I only bought 50g of it. It came in a can marked only in Japanese. There was a plastic bag around the can, that was marked. I wrote on the bottom of the can to identify it in the future. While the Japanese aren’t known for their black teas I have found the black teas I get from them to be excellent.

I brewed this once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and 190 degree water for 3 mini.

Flavors: Sakura

190 °F / 87 °C 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

I am Allan. I live and work in Long Island, New York. I have been amassing a tea collection for nearly two years and have spent way too much money. I now try to buy mostly Puerh as I like it most and it lasts nearly forever. Black tea has a habit of going bad. If anyone is interested in tea swaps I am open to ideas and have quite a cupboard.
