Sakura Cherry Blossoms
Sakura cherry blossoms are one of the best known symbols of Japan. Sakura are not only beautiful, but they also have a subtle flowery flavor. Sakura flowers are used as a decoration for sweets or are cooked just with rice.
The sakura leaves have the most intense aroma and are therefore used as powder or as a whole to enhance the flavor of cookies or Japanese style sweets.
Nowadays sakura flavor can also be enjoyed as syrup or jam with endless possibilities.
