Sakura are blooming in Kyoto!  Once spring hits, sakura everything goes on sale in Japan; sakura-flavored foods are of course no exception.  However, I was under the impression that sakura wasn’t something you ate and apparently it isn’t, but here we are.  According to one of the teachers here, it’s not an actual sakura flavor that creators are going for, but trying to re-create the way the sakura smells.  Got this sakura tea from the foreign food store in Sanjo.  They had black tea and green tea; this is the black tea version.  It’s pretty good, although not as sweet as the name would let on.  It doesn’t taste super flowery either.
