Tea Forté's Cherry Blossom blend celebrates the fleeting beauty of spring and the delicate fragrances and flavors of cherries, flower petals, and green tea leaves.
Every year as winter eases into spring, cherry blossoms unfurl across Japan, drawing crowds to parks and other outdoor spaces to take in the splendor. Hanami, as Japan's annual cherry festival season is called, is a meditation on the impermanence of beauty, as cherry blossoms typically last just a couple of weeks before their petals fall away from their branches and drift off into the breeze. Cherry blossom festivals can be enjoyed in various cities and states across the U.S. and beyond.
Tea Forté's organic Cherry Blossom blend & the Hanami Collection celebrates this phenomenon, drawing together the delicate fragrances and flavors of sweet cherries, flower petals, and green tea leaves.
Cherry blossom green tea celebrates spring's beauty in full bloom.
DELICATE GREEN TEA
Cherry Blossom's multi-sensory experience begins with its scent: a light wisp of tart fruit, the soft green earthiness of sencha, and a suggestion of pink and white flower petals. Light golden green when steeped, it evokes the feeling of an afternoon spent under a canopy of cherry trees in full bloom. This joyous, inviting tea was awarded the silver medal at the 2018 Global Tea Championship.
Composed of green tea leaves, cherries, and rose petals, the award-winning, organic Cherry Blossom blend welcomes tea lovers around the world to breathe in and appreciate the fleeting beauty of spring flowers in full bloom. Green tea, made of rolled and roasted leaves from the camellia sinensis tea plant, is known for its health-forward antioxidants and L-Theanine, a natural amino acid that gently rounds off caffeine's edge, imparting a calm sense of focused energy for several hours after consumption.
