A gift.

Don’t have much to add as there are already very good descriptions of this tea.
It is almost like eating a sugar cookie with buttercream-cherry icing — heavy on the butter, light on the floral cherry — while sitting on bed of fresh and fragrant sweet grass.
A second steep brings out more of the spinach vegetal flavor of the sencha and the cherry blossom becomes even more subtle but it’s still a delightful sip.

Hello, spring.

Thank you Mastress Alita.

Cameron B. sent me this one to try. I really liked it :D.

That’s a slight improvement from cherry-scented butt from the salted-sakura leaf version that Lupicia does. I like both, but do prefer the sugared leaves over the salted, myself.

Nobody wants to smell your finger when you say “Smell my finger.”
Night and Day, both from the cupboards of Mastress Alita.

Still my favorite sakura tea. Glad you liked it too.

Among my favorites are all teas Nepali, sheng puerh, Wuyi yancha, Taiwanese oolong, a variety of black (red) teas from all over, herbal tisanes. I keep a few green and white teas on hand. Shou puerh is a cold weather brew. Tiny teapots and gaiwans are my usual brewing vessels when not preparing morning cups western style and pouring into my work thermos. Friend of teabags.
