A unique sakura (cherry blossom) leaf black tea from Chiyonoen that has been in the process of experimentation since 2016. This black tea is made by blending handpicked leaves from their own sakura trees with their tea leaves, then processing the blended batch with their black tea. With this characteristic black tea, the Harashima family won the Fine Product Award at the 2017 Nihoncha Awards (a kind of people's choice award held annually). Naturally flavored, this award-winning black tea has a pleasant spring aroma which comes from sakura leaves.
