Flower-lovers are Tea-lovers?

An interesting survey was conducted in Shizuoka. It shows that people who love flowers also like tea. Maybe true or maybe doesn’t have to be.

Anyway….followed by the result, a tea company in Shizuoka has begun to work with some local flower shops for limited-period in order to search the possibility of expanding tea’s demand. Some flower shops sell Sencha made of “Shizu7132” variety. Surprisingly, this variety creates a distinctive aroma like Sakura leaves. Of course, the special aroma is not flavored, it’s given by Nature.

Tea with Sakura leaves aroma seemingly goes well with flower shop. It can help develop new market for tea.
