GUSTA SUPPLIES Cherry Blossom (Sakura) Leaf Extract Essence

Gusta Supplies


Experience the lingering aroma of the sakura (Japanese cherry blossom) leaf with this authentic flavour extract produced by Yamashin, a Japanese company specialized in seasonal sweets ingredients since 1955.

Contrary to popular imagination, the sakura flower does not actually have a strong scent.  It is the sakura leaves that are brimming of the unique floral aroma that is signature to sakura-mochi and many other spring wagashi (Japanese sweets).

The natural essence is extracted in alcohol, bringing you a convenient way to impart such floral notes.  Add it to ice creams, gelatos, sorbets, and other frozen confections, or use it for an added twist to your delicate dishes and beverages.  Although spring is short, this sakura leaf extract brings floral memories to all of your culinary, confection, and beverage creations any time of the year.

Import directly from Japan.

Gusta Supplies has expanded into an online heaven of specialty ingredients and tools from its humble beginning as a convenient shop for students attending classes at Gusta Cooking Studio. We hope you enjoy shopping here as much as our students do.
