What is Sakura Tea?


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 remain in this mixture for a month. 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.

    “Because you only need a few blossoms to make a cup of this tea, it’s not overly flavorful, but very contemplative. I found it rather soothing. A beautiful, subtle tea that welcomes spring”- Sakura Sushi, 2016

    “The taste is the same as before but without any traces of saltiness. The flowers open up beautifully and the infusion is just a very pale pink/yellow tint. The aroma is more floral while the flavor is a bit more sweet and fruity” – Lion, 2014
