Sugar-flower tea

I was expecting this tea to be flowers, sans sugar, but oh well. I don’t have that much sugar anyway and a little in my tea is enough to brighten my day.

A Pleasant Cup

I wasn’t sure what to expect with the Sweet Sakura tea but it makes an absolutely LOVELY cup of tea! It has a nice sweet flavor but isn't overly sugary. I added a dash of milk and it was a very enjoyable and pleasant experience.

All I could taste is sugar

Unfortunately, I’m not able to write a positive review for this tea. I have tasted cherry blossom tea before and loved it, but in this case all I tasted was the sugar. I would prefer just to steep the straight cherry blossoms. The sugar really overpowered it and I felt like I was just sipping sugar water which I would never do. I try to avoid sugar as much as possible. This was an expensive tea and I regret my purchase.
