ISANG kagawian sa Japan ang Hanami, ang pagsasama-samang panonood ng pamumukadkad ng cherry blossoms.
Ang Hanami o Cherry Blossom Viewingl ay isang mahalagang tradisyon na ginagawa sa Japan tuwing tagsibol (spring)o unang bahagi ng taon.

Ganito ang theme ng milk tea place na Sakura Hanami which we visited recently sa Maginhawa street, in Diliman, Quezon City.

Inside Sakura Hanami

At a glance, kapansin-pansin agad ang artificial cherry blossom display at ang kanilang signage. Maliit lang ang kanilang pwesto but the designed interior would not give you the cramp quarters feel.

Under the pink glow, feel na feel mo na you just dropped inside a tea place during the hanami season.

The Drinks

Affordable ang drinks na may presyong P120 to P160. There are a lot of mixes you can choose from. Narito ang nasubukan namin:

Cherry Blossom Fizz Tea
(P140-P160)
Ang traditional milk tea nila on ice infused with  cherry blossoms that will tickle your taste buds.

Lava Pearl Latte
(P125 – P165)
Not a tea, pero house favorite ito because of the milky lava syrup base taste na patok na patok sa mga bagets.

Dream team? Cherry Blossom Fizz, White Sakura Milk Tea and Hanami Dream

Hanami Dream
(P160 – P180)
If you’re looking for a more tea taste with that kick of fruitty and floral, this is the best choice.

Sakura Signature
Bubble Tea (Extra strong)
(P125 – P165)

Not your usual milk tea dahil mas malalasahan mo yung tea kaysa sa milk.


Hanami Yakult
(P120)
Reminisce your favorite childhood drink in this peach x Yakult combination.

Matcha Creme
Milk Tea
(P160 – P185)
Kung matcha lover ka why not go for the largest size? 1L lang naman siya.

White Sakura Milk Tea
(P160 – P180)
One of their best premium blends made with white milk tea with a light and creamy taste

Enjoy a hot tea drink with Cherry Blossom Tea. Make sure to watch the flowers bloom!

If you’re looking for a traditional approach, pwede kayong mag-order ng Traditional Cherry Blossom Tea for P180. Watch carefully as you put the cherry blossoms inside teapot filled with hot water, you would literally see the cherry blossoms bloom.
