The traditional version of Sakurayu is fresh cherry blossoms preserved with plum vinegar and salt. Symbolic of new beginnings, Sakurayu makes a slightly salty, floral herbal tea on its own or as a striking component in a tea blend. Shake off excess salt and rinse prior to brewing. This versatile flower also makes a unique garnish for savory dishes, such as onigiri, and specialty desserts, such as sakura mochi.

Sakurayu

My first time trying traditional salt-preserved sakura blossoms, and the taste is a subtle salty floral on its own as a tea. You can catch the aroma when you combine it with green tea, and the blossoms look gorgeous in a teapot! I used 2 blossoms for a 5-6 cup teapot.
