Sakura Sencha is here!

We've had a very mild winter here in Seattle (unlike almost everyone else in the country), so the cherry trees have already started blooming! Much like the cherry blossoms, the Sakura Sencha tea is here early as well!

This has become a yearly tradition for us, and is eagerly awaited by our customers. Sakura Sencha is a Japanese green tea scented with cherry blossoms (the word "sakura" means cherry blossom in Japanese). The result is a tea with a lightly sweet and floral cherry flavor with the bright, grassy richness of a quality sencha.

To celebrate, we'll be brewing it up every day the week of February 21-27, so come in and try some! You can also find it on our website here.
