Despite what its name suggests, this sakura tea does not include tea, but sakura flowers that unfold when pouring hot water.
We recommend you to prepare it in a transparent glass, to admire the flowers as much as possible.
Below are our recommendations on how to enjoy it:
– By itself: Simply pour 120 ml of hot water on the flowers. The clarity of pure water in which the flowers are floating is magical. The water will only taste a little salty.
– With tea: You can put these flowers in 120 ml of tea. We recommend green tea.
– With sake: With its salty taste, these flowers go very well with sake. As sake is also transparent, it makes it beautiful to look at.
– As a jelly: For two jelly, you will need 250 ml of water, 15 g of agar, 2 sakura flowers (for this recipe we advise you to wash them to remove the salty taste), and 2 teaspoons of sugar . Mix the water, sugar and agar and bring to boil. Heat for another 1 minute after reaching boiling point. Then pour the mixture into two containers. Place the flower in each of them. Cool it down at room temperature before placing the containers in the refrigerator until the jelly has solidified.
