This tea practically has no recorded history because it's from a newly developed cultivar. There is no "scenting" process for this tea -- the sakura notes come from the essence of tea leaf itself. This tea is an excellent example of "Hui Gan" – a.k.a. "Returning Sweetness." This is a sensation that lingers sip after sip, and is often described as producing a strong mouthfeel. This wonderful tea is 100% oxidized and carries a complex punch.
