This relaxing tea is a delicate blend of sakura (cherry blossom) leaves and houjicha, a nutty and caramel roasted tea. Houjicha is made by first steaming then roasting green tea leaves in a porcelain pot over charcoal. The process gives the leaves a distinct earthy flavor, makes the tea less bitter compared to other green teas, and is the perfect blend with the light scent and flavor of sakura.

Fujiwara Chadonya has been producing tea since the Meji era. For over 150 years, the company has focused on producing tea that conveys the peaceful spirit of Japan. They are located in Unnan City, home to one of Japan’s top 100 sakura-viewing destinations. The city’s famous Sakura Tunnel is a long path located on the riverbank of the Hii River with thousands of sakura trees arching over the walkway.

Suggested uses:Use 1 tea bag in a cup or pot of boiling water. Houjicha has minimal caffeine making it a great choice even for children or before bed.
