A young monk came to the wise tea master Lao Cha and found him in a blissful state. So he asked:
– Sensei, what made you so happy and relaxed?
– Oh, young man, I just had a cup of Sakura Sencha. What a delight it was, what bliss! I couldn't help but reminisce on the days of sitting in Izu's cool breeze, with the sakura petals dancing around me.
This tea is a refined blend of premium sencha, produced on a family farm in Shizuoka, Japan, and of sakura leaves from Izu. The tea works well at capturing the essence of Spring. Light and refreshing. Smell it and you will be greeted by a sweet, enjoyable aroma of cherry blossom and green tea. Brew it, take a sip and you will be rewarded with an exquisite taste.
