drank Sakura Houji by Lupicia
5 tasting notes

The tea contains salted cherry leaves, not cherries themselves, so the cherry flavor is more subtle than one would normally expect from “cherry” items. The aroma lingering in the empty glass is sweeter and has more cherry notes than the tea itself, so it adds an interesting contrast altering between drinking each cup and wafting the aroma.

I didn’t follow these instructions, but this is what the label says for reference:
One 150ml (5floz) cup
Tea leaves: 2.5-3g
Water temp: boiling water
Brewing time: 1.5-2min
Infusion: 1-2 cups
Ingredients: roasted green tea (hojicha), salted cherry leaves, aluminium potassium sulfate

190 °F / 87 °C 2 min, 30 sec 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
