Sakura Ryokucha is a superb blend of Sencha, Kukicha, and Sakura leaf and flower. The blend of Sencha and Kukicha is well harmonized with Sakura’s natural flavor. Our Sakura flower is also unique. Normally Sakura flower is preserved in salt but the salted flower sometimes effects the flavor of the accompanying green tea. Our Sakura flower is uniquely preserved in sugar so that it does not disturb the green tea flavor and gives a subtle sweetness. Freshly dried Sakura flower also foretells of a happy spring!
Sakura Ryokucha is a seasonal tea, usually Available in early spring, and is in stock for only a month or two.
