Japanese Cherry Leaf Tea



Only left in stock

Japanese Cherry Leaf Tea (Sakurabacha) is a caffeine-free, herbal tea with the distinct aroma of cherry blossoms. It is made from Oshima cherry leaves, which are also used to wrap around the traditional Japanese delicacy sakuramochi. The cherry leaves are semi-fermented and dried, and made into a type of oolong tea. It is a tea that can be enjoyed all year round, and with the cherry blossom smell and taste, it is suitable for celebrations.

Volume: 40g



The dried cherry leaves will unfurl and expand, so it is advisable to have a big enough teapot or container when preparing.

  1. Place approximately three large leaves (3g) of tea in a 250ml teapot or container. 
  2. Pour 200ml+ of hot water (95-100 °C) into the pot.
  3. Cover the teapot or container and wait for 30 seconds.
  4. Stir the tea gently and serve until the last drop is poured out.
  5. Enjoy your health tea!

You can make a second and third infusion by adding more water, using hotter water and infusing the tea a little longer. To make ice tea, let it stand until cool and then refrigerate.

If the cherry leaves are left too long in the water, the tea will become bitter. It is therefore important to empty the teapot between infusions.
