Nepalese Sakura SFTGFOP1: Mid-season

Sakura is a large leaf third flush picking that has developed a deep nectar-like fragrance with a well rounded muscatel character. In the cup Nepalese Sakura tea appears a deep reddy bronze. However it has a younger, fresher flavour than a Darjeeling. This is due to the youth of the tea bushes which were planted later than in Darjeeling. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for four minutes. Drink without milk.

Tea from Grey's Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

This tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This Nepalese Sakura tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet.

These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

    Service: Good selection of teas. Prompt delivery that is free when a reasonable amount is spent.

  2. Mr D P Clough

    Product: Nice tea, but not my favourite. Bought to try something new.
    Service: Friendly and helpful service. Good communication in resolving issue (out of stock tea, and replacement product).

  3. Iris Assing (verified owner)

    Product: Very good, as in the description: worth every penny.
    Service: Perfect

  4. Mrs Susan Bromiley

    Service: Took a few weeks to arrive this time, which was disappointing. However everything I ordered was included, well packaged.

  5. David Phillips

    Service: Yet again Greys have taken my order, cashed in my payment, sent this questionnaire but not delivered the tea!. I had to send 3 – increasingly annoyed – emails last time. When I buy tea from NBT of F&M it arrives without hassle the following day. Yet this virtually never happens with Greys
    Vendor response: I am sorry you have this view which is not reflected in the experience of the vast majority of our other customers. Your order was despatched within four days. There was some delay whilst we awaited additional stock. We have received no communication from you.

    Mr Grey has found some excellent Nepalese teas. I am trying Sakura for the first time, it’s light an almost honey-like aroma and smooth. Not a beefy breakfast tea but good for later in the day. Adding it to Nepalese Kathmandu on my list.

  12. melisandef (verified owner)

    this is my favourite tea so far; it’s light, delicate and very fragrant. An excellent bargain for an everyday tea

  13. D. Jameson (verified owner)

    Ceylon Nuwara Eliya Court Lodge OP So far not a lot of taste to this tea. Perhaps if I used more tea and filled 2 silicone tea bags rather than one.
