Tea review: Sakura Sencha green tea with cherry blossom

I just had my first cup of this tea and it was lovely, and it should be at C$20 a cherry blossom tea on a spoonpack. The gentleman from The Naked Leaf tea shop in Calgary explained that this tea was seasonable, hence the higher price.

A really mellow tea with a subtle fruitiness from the cherry blossom – I think you could make a lovely iced tea from this.

The Naked Leaf is well worth a visit as well, huge range of teas and each had a little sample so you could look at the leaf and have a sniff. I’d say it’s equivalent in London is the Covent Garden Tea Shop – another favourite tea shop of mine.

Highly recommend both the tea and the tea shop.
