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

During the spring season, flowers of sakura is preserved classically in salt and plum vinegar, and are used for teas and in cuisine and baking.  The natural essence is extracted in alcohol, bringing you a convenient way to impart such beautiful colour and unique flavour.

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). 

Add sakura flower extract to ice creams, gelatos, sorbets, and other frozen confections, or use it for an added twist to tea, lemonade, and soda.  Although the blossoms are only available for a short time, this sakura extract brings the delicate flavour and scent of sakura to all of your culinary, confection, and beverage creations any time of the year.

Import directly from Japan.
