TWG Tea heralds the arrival of Spring with a sakura-inspired tea blend

Each year, when the Japan Weather Association releases its annual sakura forecast, travellers the world over start to plot their passage to Japan to witness the country's cherry blossoms unfurl. This year, the cherry blossoms are expected to bloom as early as 22 March in the South of Japan. Can't make it down to witness this annual floral display? Do the next best thing and settle down with a cup of TWG Tea's Always Sakura Tea.

The latest release from the brand's Spring 2017 Haute Couture Tea Collection sees a green tea base blended with notes of Rainier cherry and delicate florals. On the nose, a powdery sweetness hints at a fruity, floral brew, but once you've steeped the tea, you'll discover an elegant brew that combines the sweetness of cherry with a smooth, almost creamy note of vanilla and spring blossoms.
