SAKURACHA – Sakura tea with pickled sakura flowers


Weight: 1кg.

Sakura tea is a popular drink for celebrations such as weddings or other special occasions.  It is made only once a year, only from the collected cherry sakura pickled in salt.

Sakura tea has a very authentic taste of Japan, with a delicate, floral aroma and aroma.  When tea flows across the sky, the first sensation is salinity, which may be a bit unusual for Westerners, after which a beautiful floral scent opens in the mouth.  The unique aroma of Sakura is unforgettable, like the scent of a rose.  A pleasant, subtle aftertaste persists for a few minutes.

There are two ways to make sakura tea:

– The most common way is to take one or two flowers for each cup of tea and remove as much salt from the flowers as you like before using them.  Pour hot water over the flowers and you will get a light tea that has a faint cherry aroma and an intense aroma.  Although edible, flowers in tea are usually not eaten.

– For a more delicate flavor, it is best to first soak the flowers in warm water for five minutes.  Then you put one or two flowers in a teacup and pour hot water on them.  Taste and salinity can be adjusted by adding some of the salt soaking water with a spoon.

A common option is to add a flower or two to green tea when pouring leaves with hot water.

Can be used to decorate desserts.

In Japanese, Sakura tea is called Sakura cha (桜 茶) or Sakura Yu (桜 湯).

Since fresh cherry flowers can be harvested only once a year, the Japanese began to pickle them in salt and plum vinegar in order to be able to enjoy the aroma of sakura throughout the year.  In the old days, many farms with orchards and cherry trees made their own pickled sakura.  Nowadays, most people buy salted sakura flowers from one of the few companies that still produce this product.

Sakura tea is not only a must for the cherry flowering season, but an excellent drink for a moment of peace and pleasure.
