While the Sakura (Cherry) blossom is appreciated for its beauty in Japan,
the Sakura leaf has an unique flavor that is used to enhance the taste of some traditional dishes. Den's Tea has added the flavor of Sakura to our premium Sencha. This is a rare blend and, similar to the Sakura blossom, it is available only for a limited time in early spring.
