flavour profile: the blissful taste of delicate cherry & sencha with a beguiling, fruity & floral aroma*
ingredients: Japanese green tea, sakura cherry essence
*Our current batch of this popular tea has a stunningly beautiful, sweet floral aroma & taste that is more heightened than usual. As well, the distinctive fruity & sour notes that are characteristic of this tea are a bit milder than is typical. The sour and fruity aspects to the tea remain, but in a slightly subdued way, with this added floral note.
Premium quality, organic tea is like fine wine - it changes from batch to batch and season to season. Rainfall patterns and temperature variations cause changes to the taste of ingredients.
This is a plus overall, because it reflects a high quality, fresh, seasonal product grown in harmony with nature. We do not use any artificial flavourings.
If you love the more intensely fruity version of this tea, we recommend purchasing a smaller quantity of this batch, in case it's not your cup of tea! As tea is a food product, it is not refundable, so it's best to stock up once you know for sure you're a fan of this batch.
In the event you fall in love with this version, we recommend purchasing more soon, as climate change is having unpredictable effects on harvests, so we don't yet know what the next batch will reveal in terms of aroma and taste.
We are not in a position to offer free samples at this time, but if you'd like to try it before you buy it, a mini-tin is a great trial size to purchase for only $4.99.
In Japan, sakura cherry blossoms are a symbol of fleeting beauty and they remind us to appreciate the beauty of the moment & to be more mindful. In that sense, the Sour Cherry Tea is being true to form - the change in the taste encourages us to celebrate this delightful sweet, floral taste while we can, before it's gone. For those who love the more classic version, it's an opportunity to appreciate the tea in its more original form when it returns.
