Hunan Province produces some excellent Japanese style green teas. Early in the new season the tea is a bright emerald green and has the best flavor noted by a spring fresh character with pungency and body. [In Hunan the tea starts growing about March 15th, and between then and the end of April the quality is very good. Once you pass April, the quality plummets on account of the volume of leaf taken in and the bushes growing too quickly. Our policy is that we only buy our China tea requirements from tea grown between March 15 and April 15 - you will taste our quality and dedication to better tea when you compare our tea with similarly graded teas]. Sencha is commonly used in Japanese tea ceremonies marking events of personal importance. In this type of ceremony it is the ritual that is of paramount importance as the individual is being acknowledged. Flavored tea is a relatively new phenomena and combining flavors with roses and Japanese style green tea is almost considered ‘avant garde’ by our Japanese friends.

Kyoto is the cultural centre of Japan. Several centuries ago Kyoto was the religious capital of Japan. The relics of this past are evident throughout the city. Beside the multitude of temples that dot the city, and the wonderful parks where religious scholars once walked, the city has more the 1000 Torjii - those typical gate/arch structures that one associates with Japan. The Torjii are large with the top shaped like a curved samurai sword (respect) and the two pillars are solid and stately (well being). During the springtime this area of Japan is ablaze with the new season cherry blossoms and the air is filled with sweet aroma. (The rose petals in this blend are intended to simulate these delicate cherry blossoms and the flavor is reminiscent of the beautiful smells that waft on the springtime breezes.) It is little wonder that this ancient city has a very high ratio of tearooms and this tea was created to honor (very important in Japan) this wonderful time of the year.

If you like the taste of cherries and green tea, then you gotta give this one a shot. This is a great blend of the two different flavors, and has a nice rose scent to it. (Posted on 5/13/2016)
PeacefulReview by L
This was the first tea I tried from the Whistling Kettle. Even though it was a sweltering summer day and the restaurant was packed full, a cup of this hot tea took me away from it all! Excellently fragrant, gentle floral flavor, smooth tea. Highly recommended. (Posted on 12/15/2014)
It was pretty goodReview by Holly
I have had similar cherry flavored green teas. For the price, this one is remarkably good. Just don't bees too hot. This kind of tea is prone to bitterness. (Posted on 12/8/2013)
