I like my green teas with a little more flavor than is found in Hanami, so purely based on personal preference it's not my favorite. That said, it is a lovely green tea, and the hint of cherry keeps it from registering as boring or ordinary. If you like a soothing, quiet green tea, you will likely enjoy Hanami.
Another wonderful green tea from Tea Forte. Many green teas with fruit just taste fruity and lose the unique green tea flavor. Hanami is a great blend, has the richness of the green tea flavor with the perfect amount of cherry accent. Definitely follow the brewing instructions as it can get bitter if brewed too long. I have tried it a number of times and love it for a morning tea, an afternoon treat and my family enjoyed it iced. I also gave to a tea loving friend who commented that it was the perfect blend of green and sweet.
Received my Hanami tea order today and straight way made a cuppa. The first thing I noticed was the mild floral scent. It has a very mild flavor after steeping only 3 minutes with no after taste as a lot of other green teas can have. I find the tea very relaxing as I watch snow falling. I would recommend this tea to friends and family.
