Celebrate the spring season with this set of exclusive tea blends from the PARU Tea Lab, which includes all of our cherry blossom teas for the year:
- NEW 1 x Yozakura (0.8 oz / 24 g pouch)
Inspired by the experience of “yozakura,” or “cherry blossoms at night,” we crafted an herbal tea blend that you can enjoy after the sun goes down. We used green rooibos and lemon balm for a bright, earthy base and sprinkled in sakura petals for a delicate floral flavor.
- 1 x Hanadoki (1.5 oz / 42 g pouch)
Hanadoki (“flowering season” in Japanese) is our original blend of dried cherry blossoms from Shiga, dried rose petals, and sencha (sun-grown green tea) from the PARU tea estate in Nara.
- 1 x Sakurayu, Salt-Cured Cherry Blossom Tea (1.5 oz / 42 g glass jar)
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.
