Just came back from a 2 day trip to Sendai and brought back some Sakura tea with me. The Sakura leaves looked good in the cup and didn’t get in the way of me enjoying the Sakura taste. The tea actually tastes good but the drinking sensation is a bit glooey.
If you are looking for a change from regular Japanese Green Tea and have enjoyed the Sakura season then Sakura Tea could be just the thing for you.
Here is a close up of the Sakura leaves in the cup. I got the cup from the Rilakkuma store at Tokyo station. From the picture it looks like Rilakkuma is just about to help himself to a sip of my tea.
