April in Japan is a time for hanami, gazing at gorgeous and abundant sakura (cherry blossom) trees – a sign of spring. For generations, they have preserved the blossoms in salt, to enjoy sakura year round. 

The tart and unique flavor of the Salt Preserved Sakura are ideal for tea, baking, or for steaming with rice.
