From M&K's Tea Company

M&K’s is proud to offer our exclusive Sakura Phoenix tea! We take the famous Feng Huang Chinese oolong tea picked from wild and independent (Dancong) tea bushes growing on the mountainside, and combine the tea with pickled Japanese cherry blossoms, which retain their unique cherry scent straight from the tree they were picked from in Kyoto, Japan. Sakura Phoenix tea combines tastes of honey and cherry blossoms with an aroma of garden orchids.

*We highly recommend you "rinse" this tea before you drink it (because of the salt on the cherry blossoms as well as the Phoenix tea opening up with a rinse). Simply pour boiling water over the tea, allow it to sit for about 10-15 seconds, discard the water, and then proceed with a normal brew!

You are drinking fire when you are drinking this tea. The amount of salt with the crisp, spicy yet fruity Phoenix oolong replicates that. My grandmother and mother liked it, I was not a huge fan. I made sure to get as much of the salt rinsed as directed, but still dominated the cup. It’s good, but for a very particular palette.

I feel bad for anyone who doesn’t know to rinse a cherry blossom tea before brewing it… talk about salt!
These pickled cherry blossoms are coated :)

The oolong is nice and brisk but still allows the sakura taste to come through. Very nice.
