The essence of Spring preserved in sugar! We are delighted to be offering this delicate tisane. Superbly soft pink Cherry Blossom flowers, giving a fine bouquet of fresh Spring aromas, an amazing floral display as the petals unfurl revealing a silky super sweet flavour. The most delicate and ephemeral treat in your cup. Enjoyed as a fresh sweet infusion, refreshingly cold brewed or as an excellent addition to a bright Sencha. Often enjoyed in Japan at weddings and special occasions, Sakura is a true symbol of Spring and new beginnings.
