This tea has practically no history because it's a brand new cultivar creation. There is no "scenting" process for this tea -- the sakura notes are from the tea leaf itself. This tea is an excellent example of what "hui gan" is - the "returning sweetness." This is a sensation felt sip after sip, often described as a strong mouthfeel. This wonderful tea is 100% oxidized and carries a complex punch.
