drank Hanami by Gryphon Tea Company
21 tasting notes

Gryphon’s POTO is one of my long-time favs and Hanami could be my perfect Sakura cuppa.

Other cherry blossom blends I’ve tried in the past came across as either sharp ume-ish concoctions, or bitter like cough syrup. But Hanami is sweet and creamy. I was surprised its base is Sencha. Coz it didn’t strike me as dark or mellow at all. There’s a hint of vanilla or some kind of gourmandish note, as well.

Also, I find Gryphon’s silky gauze sachets diffuse flavour better than paper tea bags.

My fav teas are:
- rose green tea
- peach black tea
- jasmine green or white tea
- floral gourmands
But I’m game to try anything outside this range! :)
