Description

Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose Green Tea

Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose is a blend of high quality green tea with sweet cherry flavorings & subtle rose hints which give the tea a wonderful exotic character. Both cherries and rose have significance in Japanese culture. The flavors also find their way into Japanese tea and other foods. You also have the annual Japanese Cherry festivals held throuighout Japan as the cherry trees blossom in the Spring. These are the same cherry trees which line the tidal basin in Washington, DC and also bloom every Spring. Sencha Kyoto Cherry Rose was one of our first teas, and has been a customer and personal favorite.

From a historical perspective, Kyoto is the cultural center of Japan. Several centuries ago Kyoto was the religious capital of Japan. The relics of this past are evident throughout the city. Beside the multitude of temples that dot the city, and the wonderful parks where religious scholars once walked, the city has more the 1000 Torjii – those typical gate/arch structures that one associates with Japan. The Torjii are large with the top shaped like a curved samurai sword (respect) and the two pillars are solid and stately (well-being). During the springtime this area of Japan abounds with cherry blossoms and the air is filled with their sweet aroma. The rose petals in this blend are intended to simulate these delicate cherry blossoms. The flavor is reminiscent of the beautiful smells that waft on the springtime breezes. It is little wonder that this ancient city has many tearooms and this tea was created to honor this wonderful time of the year, which is very important in Japan.

We also have a Cherry Rose Rooibos if you prefer an herbal non-caffeinated version.  If you like the cherry flavor, then you must look at our Japanese Cherry Green Tea.  the cherry scent alone is intoxicating.
