Sipdown! (26 | 26)
I sent out a packet of this with a recent sample package for a new Instagram tea friend. And since that left me with only a single 5g sample left, I figured I’d finish it off! But never fear, I still have a couple of unopened 25g packages of this one… ;)
I love sakura… It has such an unusual but delicious flavor – light and floral, sweet and fruity, yet herbaceous and savory as well. Unlike anything else, really. This one doesn’t actually have any salt added to the sakura, but it still has that slight salinity to it. The sencha base is scrumptious as well, über smooth with a wonderful blend of vegetal sweetness, refreshing grassiness, and complex umami notes.
Such a well-balanced tea, and one I’ll have to stock up on each year while it’s available! I also have a sakura and mint tisane from Obubu that I’m excited to try. :D
