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.

I tried this when it came in my Sipsby box and immediately fell in love with it. Usually I do not like cherry flavored anything, but this is different.

Review by RisTeaon February 28, 2019
This tea is absolutely delicious. It’s so smooth and lightly floral but not in an overpowering way. This is my go-to tea when I want to relax but I’m not trying to go to sleep. Perfect for reading a book and cozying in with a blanket.

Review Title: One of the Best

Review by Krison February 23, 2019
This has to be one of the best tea I've drank in my entire life. It has the perfect yet subtle cherry flavor. It's an absolute 10/10 for me. However, I didn't realize it had caffeine in it, and I drank like 7 cups of it over 24 hours. Whoops. Ruined my sleep cycle but it was so worth it.

Review Title: Black Teas

Review by Royon January 25, 2019
I have tried 3 of the black teas (Assam/Breakfast/Japanese Cherry). Out of the 3 teas the Cherry Blossom is my favorite and I am not necessarily a floral tea drinker. I enjoyed the other two but I could appreciate the subtle floral nature of this tea. I would definitely encourage you to a least try them all and compare.
