Description

Qu’est-ce que le Sakura-cha?Sakura cha

Le Sakura-cha (桜茶) est une infusion japonaise traditionnelle très spéciale à base de fleurs de cerisier salées. Symbole de nouveau départ, elle est souvent dégustée durant les cérémonies joyeuses comme les mariages, ou pour célébrer l’arriver du printemps.

« Sakura » (桜) est le nom donné aux célèbres et magnifiques cerisiers du Japon qui fleurissent chaque année dans tout l’archipel, et le caractère « Cha »(茶) fait référence ici au thé et aux infusions en général. On peut donc traduire Sakura-cha par « Thé de Sakura » ou « Thé de fleurs de cerisier ».
Pour fabriquer du Sakura-cha, les fleurs sont mélangées à du vinaigre de prune (« Ume » 梅)et du sel, et sont saumurées pendant 3 à 4 semaines. Il se boit infusé dans de l’eau très chaude, le plus souvent une seule fleur à la fois et dans une tasse transparente afin d’admirer la lente et belle ouverture des pétales.

Profil de l’agriculteur

 

Notre Thé de Sakura provient de la belle ville balnéaire d’Odawara, dans la préfecture de Kanagawa. Les fleurs sont issues d’un type bien particulier de cerisier, le Yae-Zakura, et sont récoltées entre fin mars et début avril. Le processus de saumurage permet de les conserver et de les déguster toute l’année.

    Reviews by tea professionals and enthusiasts:

    « The scent and taste are surprisingly more like cherries than I’d imagine. I thought it’d be a bit more floral. I think some of this is actually plum flavor coming from the plum vinegar. There’s a hint of saltiness to this tea that is subtle, but if you save the initial brine from the flower that was soaked in hot water, you can scoop back in a little of this salty and flavorful brine a bit at a time if you want your drink to be a little more salty and flavorful » – Lion, 2014

    “The aroma of these beautiful flowers is very mild, sweet and tangy like pickled peaches with a hint of flower and salt. The flavor is incredible, I can see some people not liking it, but for me it is perfection. The taste is smooth and creamy mixing with floral notes and nuttiness. It mixes really well with other teas and makes an incredible latte.” – by Amanda, 2013

    “Once soaked, flower looks wonderful. Tea is a sufficient one. The smell is still reminiscent of plum … and taste … the taste is special … slightly salty, slightly floral. a little Japanese …” – by Cajnekronike, 2013 (Translated form Kroatian)

    “This is a truly beautiful tea. In the back the tiny flowers have a smell of light umeboshi, salt, plum/cherry, and floral hints. It is simply amazing to watch them steep. I wish I had a decent camera because you can see the veins in the translucent skins of the flower petals. As much as I enjoy watching blooming teas, this feels much more organic. ” – by Tamm, 2013

    “Quite a light tea – I get a cute kiss of a sweet cherry taste that is floral. The sakura tea’s flavor flutters softly towards a more savory flavor that’s a little salty. The more I sip away, the more stronger and floral this tea gets. I gotta say, I quite like the floral here. I’m so used to jasmine and rose florals – sakura floral is on another planet. A cute planet, with fairies, white chocolate, tiny tea cups, big pink dresses and cuddly white owls. The floral is sweet and fluffy.” – by Oolong Owl, 2013

    “This was something I have never tasted before. The first taste was bright and sweet, and then followed with a savory aftertaste. The savory taste was very soft, but still held the floral notes of the cherry blossom.” – by Nicole, 2011

    ” tea is a fragrant, but not too flowery, lightly salty tisane. This may sound very bizarre to many Western tea drinkers, but the salt turns what might be an extremely floral tea into a more subtle, mature drink. If you have trouble stomaching the idea of a salty tea, think of it as a broth or soup–suddenly, it’ll be delicious! A benefit of removing the salt in a separate cup in Step 2 is that you can then season your main drinking cup to taste. And consider pairing this tea with something sweet–the contrast might delight you. Beneath the saltiness, you’ll find the unique taste of sakura blossoms–a sort of light, airy, but fragrant sweetness.” – by Caclob, 2011

    “This tea was sweet and slightly floral. It was almost as though the blossom just very lightly scented the water. A lot of teas use artificial cherry flavoring and this tea tastes nothing like those. I was expecting it to be extremely salty tasting but it was actually rather subtle. I would definitely recommend this tea.” – by Tea For Me Please, 2011

    “It’s made from salt-pickled cherry blossoms, which you soak to remove the salt before you brew, and oh my god is it delicious. The tea has a very delicate cherry scent, with a salty undertone, and tastes similar. The taste is much stronger than I expected from a single blossom: uniquely floral and refreshing, mildly sweet, with a hint of salt. If you have glass teaware, I recommend using it with this tea so that you can watch the blossom unfurl itself when you pour on the water.” – by Sunlandictwins, 2011

    “Flavor: Sweet and lightly floral as you would imagine a cherry blossom to smell. Tiny bit salty but most of the flavor was removed during the 5mins I let the flower soak in warm water, as directed. I then put in a spoonful of water, one at a time using the water the flower was soaking which adds a bit of a salty flavor. I noticed after the second spoonful that the sweetness vanished and the flavor became completely different. I wish I could describe it but let’s just say it was very unique and no it doesn’t taste like water with salt. I am glad I tried it and recommend you give it a try knowing it is a big risk. I imagine this to be a love it or hate it experience for most.” – by Rachel, 2010
