The dry leaf visual of this tea is breath taking! The gyokuro is a deep emerald green and the sakura petals are such a cute and colourful pink contrast. It’s the type of visual that I think, even if you’re like me and you dislike green tea, is immediately eye catching and elegant. Sadly all I tasted when I drank this tea was the gyokuro. Mind you, I generally hate gyokuro so perhaps my attention was more fixated on it in a negative way than other people would be.
It wasn’t a surprise to me I disliked the blend though. It was fighting an uphill battle from the start.
