    My New Favorite Spring/Summer Tea

    This is such a delightful blend...light, floral and ever so slightly sweet/fruity! I drink it every day, and make sure to re-order before I run out! You have to try this green tea blend!

    Cherry yes!

    A teaspoon of this delicious tea steeped in just three minutes is truly refreshing during the summer months either warm in the morning or iced in the evening.

    Fantastic tea!

    I purchased this delicious loose tea to be used in the hanami steeping cup. What a treat.

    I love this tea

    This tea is my current favorite next to Orchid Vanilla, which is quite different. I like this one for mid-morning and afternoon. I also tried it iced this weekend and it was great! I definitely plan to buy more.

    Subtle, traditional green tea

    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.

    Delightful tea in a stylish canister

    The Hanami is another great addition to the Tea Forte green tea collection. The flavor is a pure green tea flavor with a perfect accent of cherry. The loose tea allows for the desired strength and flavor and is great for the Kati cup. The container is stylish and looks great on the counter!

    Very Light and Uplifting

    Hanami tea is quite possibly the most wonderfully aromatic in the green tea selection. The scent is fantastic and the flavor is very light - much like you would imagine cherry blossoms to be. It’s a perfect tea for spring and summer. I tried doubling the amount and it does bring out the flavor even more…but steeping it longer than the two to three minutes as noted on the directions gives it a rather bitter taste, so set your timer! Normally I prefer my green tea to have just a touch of honey added, but I felt this was better on its own. I absolutely LOVE the fact that it is organic.

    Soothing with no After Taste

    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.

    Spring in a cup!

    This has quickly become my new favorite blend... I just love the floral notes and subtle cherry flavor. And the fact that it's organic makes it even better!
