A beautiful flower version creating the flavor of the classic salty/vinegary flavor of sakura mochi—traditional Japanese rice cake wrapped with sakura leaves often eaten in the early spring when the cherry blossoms bloom.

Product Info

  • Name: Sakura Tea
  • Ingredients: Japanese cherry blossoms, salt, ume (plum) vinegar, acidifier, alum
  • Region: Odawara, Kanagawa (right in Yunomi’s backyard!)
  • Storage: Keep airtight in cool, dry area away from sunlight. Refrigerate and use soon after opening.

Instructions

  1. The salt makes this a very strong tea if not diluted, so we recommend taking one blossom and soaking it in lukewarm water for 3 minutes. The salt will dissolve into the water. Keep this water to adjust flavor.
  2. Take the blossom, and place it in your tea, or in hot water if you want to enjoy the flavor alone. Use the water from step 1 to strengthen the flavor if you find it too weak.
  3. This also makes a beautiful garnishing for pastries or other dishes!
