    my mom loves it and so do my friends

    I am updating the review from 3 stars to 4.5 stars (rounded to 5). The first box I bought somehow had very few flowers (almost none). I guess that was an unlucky box? But the next box I opened is better and I like it more. My mother loves it and so do my friends. The loose tea in the tin can is better for me than these pyramid ones, so I am getting loose leaf for myself and pyramids for gifts.

    Lovely Tea

    This tea heightens every sense. Delightfully refreshing. The presentation box warrants being displayed. Loved sipping it as hot tea or cold. I just love to smell the tea leaves. I highly recommend this tea for yourself or as a gift to a friend.

    Box of Delight

    This box was a beautiful package holding such a tasteful delight. Yummy is the word that comes to mind. Thank you for a pure taste of the Far East.

    Subtle Flavor, Lovely Presentation

    This is a very gently flavored, traditional green tea. I tend to enjoy my green teas with a little more flavor, but if you enjoy a more delicate cup, you will likely enjoy Hanami. The cherry is a nice addition, that brings some interest to the flavor and keeps it from registering as bland. As always, the tea forte pyramid infusers are adorable. Great for hosting.

    Delightful tea

    Hanami is a wonderful addition to the green tea collection. Fresh green tea with fruit accents. The tea bags are beautifully packaged and make for a great gift as well as a way to bring the wonderful Hanami flavor on the go!

    Very Subtle Flavoring

    Much like the loose variety of this tea, Hanami is very light and perfect for the warmer months. The aroma is fantastic and the cherry flavor is a subtle undertone rather than the main flavor. Given how subtle the flavoring is, I would suggest making sure you know the size of your tea cup. I believe the infuser is meant for an 8oz cup and many cups are 12oz. Oversteeping turns the flavor bitter and the infusers don’t allow for you to add a little more to the brewing, so it’s best to use the appropriate cup size or the flavoring becomes too weak to enjoy. Like all the infusers at Tea Forte, the string is strong enough that you can crimp it on the edge of the cup and it doesn’t sink - a wonderful trait.

    Wonderful Introduction to Hanami Tea

    I have written a review about the tea itself, but wanted to include a review about these great presentation boxes. They make wonderful gifts for a tea connoisseur or someone that is new to tea in general. With the Petite Box it allows a person to get to know the tea prior to buy the loose tea or another box. And if by chance it isn't their "cuppa..." they can pay it forward.

    only 1 tiny pinkish dry flower in a pyramid

    I love Tea Forte. I love cherry blossom. Most of my reviews give 5 stars to teas I buy from here. So far, I have not had a good luck with having pink flower petal in a Hanami pyramid. Only 1 or 2 in a pyramid, so no special taste or aroma for Hanami yet. Is it supposed to be so? Perhaps it is supposed to have a very subtle aroma. I expected too much, I guess. But the green tea is fine.

    What a terrific tea!

    Great - but not overpowering - cherry notes seem to bring out even more of that healthy green tea flavor. Brewed hot, it is incredibly restorative. Looking forward to a summer day to make it iced; I bet it would be so refreshing.

    Lovely take on Spring

    The Hanami tea is not only beautiful but delicious. The subtle taste of cherries is a great way to ease into Spring!
