Hanami: Cherry Blossom Festival welcomes spring
The Hanami is a long springtime greeting in Japan. Known as the "Cherry Flower Festival", this year' s event is all about honouring the temporary beauties of the outdoors.

To make it pleasantly flowery and sour, you can mix it in a mixture of natural biological sake with either virgin teas or dark teas and brew it in milk sauce with or without flowers. Or you can enjoy the Wabi-Sabi-Natural of Hanami by sipping a cup of chafan styled bio-mata.
