«Sakura» is a special blend made from sencha tea and sakura (the Japanese cherry) petals. Spring harvest 2020.

In appearance: thin, dark green tubes of twisted tea leaves and brown fragments of sakura leaves and petals. The fragrance is bright, herbal-floral with a biscuit hint. The liquor is transparent, with a light green shade.

The bouquet of the ready-made tea is fresh, grassy-floral. The fragrance is intense, floral. The taste is refined and full-bodied, oily and sweet, with a delicate grassy bitterness turning into a juicy aftertaste.

Classic Japanese brewing method is to put the tea in a teapot at the rate of 2 g per 100 ml, add hot water (70°C), and after 45-60 seconds pour the tea into cup. You can steep the tea up to three times. The time of the second steeping is 30 seconds; for the third steeping it is 15 seconds.

«Sakura» is a fresh and bright breath of spring. The sweet aroma of Japanese cherry perfectly complements the mild, rich taste of sencha.
