This tea contains real cherry blossoms that bloom in hot water, I couldn’t taste it, since it wasn’t on a tea bag, I wasn’t too exited about drinking flowers water tea directly.

It’s a traditional Japanese sweet, cute cherry blossom flower shape, nice sweet taste.

Final Thoughts

This Sakuraco Japanese snack spring box testing was a good experience, I liked the different flavors and tastes from all the variety snacks.

I liked some snacks more than others, but in general, the quality was there.

If I have to give a mark per ten , it will be 7/10 for the overall aspects ( shipping, delivery, packaging, design, snacks choices and taste).

Cheers and see you soon in another review from JapanFoodStyle 😉
