Description

SakurachaSakura cha

Sakuracha (桜茶) is a very special, traditional Japanese infusion that is unlike any other. Sakura is the name for the famous pink cherry blossoms that bloom all over Japan in the spring. The flowers are mixed with ume plum vinegar and salt and is left to infuse for 3-4 weeks. Cherry blossom tea is considered very special in Japan and is mostly served at weddings, as it is believed to represent new beginnings.

 

Farmer Profile

Our Sakura tea comes from the beautiful seaside town of Odawara, Kanagawa. The blossoms are harvested between late March and early April, but the pickling process used to preserve them allows the tea to be enjoyed all year round.
