In the Know

Every year between the months of March and May, Japan’s hillsides and streets are veiled with an ethereal fantasy of "pink snow." This remarkable vision is produced by the falling flowers of the cherry blossom tree, known in Japan as Sakura. The flower is a cultural icon and is celebrated each year in the ancient custom called Hanami, a ceremonial tradition in Japan. Hanami can be translated as flower viewing. During this fleeting season, the flower blooms only briefly, and is considered a metaphor for the transient aspect of human existence. Additionally, springtime represents a time of renewal. The Cherry Blossom Festival unites people in a celebration of nature’s beauty and life, shared by rejoicing in food and drink, all inspired by the beloved Cherry Blossom Tree. During the festival, there are many food and drinks created with the Sakura flower.

Developing Our Blend

The petal is naturally mild in taste, but when soaked and salted the flower becomes concentrated and is then ready to be used in food and drinks. Desserts made from dried petals soaked in salt solution are mixed with red bean paste, which forms the basis of many traditional desserts, including Sakura Mochi, the one we wanted to extract the essence of to duplicate for our Japanese Cherry Blossom Tea.

The task at hand was not easy, due to the fact that the Sakura leaf, when soaked in a salt solution, has a salty, as opposed to sweet base. This is where we tested our creativity, by seeking to develop balanced ingredients that would produce complimenting flavors. Our blender eventually succeeded in developing a process that worked.

Exquisite Results

We select petals from a specific region of Japan, which consistently results in the most enticing floral aroma. Finding the perfect tea to compliment the delicate blossoms took a while, but in the end we settled on incorporating a black tea that was light enough to avoid overpowering the blossoms, but strong enough to provide the perfect amount of oomph.

Why choose Buddha Teas?

Buddha Teas searches the world for the very best herbs, flowers, spices, and teas to incorporate into our blended and single herb wellness products. We NEVER use additives or “natural” flavorings. Instead, we use substantial quantities of key ingredients to ensure our products have optimal efficacy. During our exploration for the best, we found that living in harmony with nature is ideal. We've realized that any time we need nature to provide for us, we must give something back. Sustainably harvesting and keeping waste and pollution at a bare minimum made sense to us. Buddha Teas is 100% chemical free, from our bleach free tea bags to our utilization of soy-based ink for our labels and beautifully colored tea boxes. When you buy Buddha Teas, you’re not only enjoying a flavorful, hand-crafted, all-natural tea but you will also feel peace of mind knowing that you are buying your tea from a company that gives back to our magnificent planet.

Bleach-Free Tea Bags

Our tea bags may not be the whitest, but they ARE the safest because Buddha Teas ONLY uses bleach-free teas bags. For us, this is not a preference but a necessity. Tea bags that have been bleached contain harmful chemicals such as dioxin and epichlorohydrin. Dioxin is a highly toxic, chemical compound produced by some chemical processes such as bleaching paper. It falls into the category of a POP (persistent organic pollutant) which, as the name suggests, persists and refuses to breakdown in our bodies and the environment, potentially taking decades to detox. Epichlorohydrin (bleach) is also toxic and listed as a hazardous air pollutant (HAP). It has been classified by the EPA as a human carcinogen.

Bleach Free Tea Bag

We believe that our customers should never have to choose between their health and their senses so we proudly offer bleach-free tea bags so that they can taste the purity of natural teas without the cost of harmful chemicals or additives.
