Kyoto Cherry Blossom
CharacterA smooth pale-yellow green tea with a luxurious cherry flavour and aroma with real sour cherry pieces throughout.
At the beginning of April in the Kyoto tourists from all over converge on the Botanical Gardens to witness dusted pink cherry blossoms all over the city at what is the changing of the season and the beginning of springtime. Sakura the Japanese word for Cherry blossom is one of the most important festive seasons in Japan. Hanami (cherry blossom viewing) is an age old cultural and religious tradition, the cherry blossom cycle only short lived is symbolic of life, death and renewal. Green tea Sencha goes hand in hand with cherry trees, both two very iconic and important elements of Japanese culture and their way of life. The taste of this tea is reminiscent of the fresh scent of cherry blossom on a cool spring morning, definitely a tea to transcend reality.
