Almond is a good match for the cherry notes and won't overpower the tea
The Japanese Heian Period (794–1185AD) was the heyday of "hanami", the practice of picnicking under the cherry blossom. We’ve numbered this tea 794 to mark the start of a centuries-old tradition. We know which tea to take on our picnic…
The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
