Using a pair of chopsticks, take out 1 to 2 salt pickled cherry blossoms from the package and remove some of the excess salt.
Place the pickled cherry blossoms in the 1st cup. Add about 1/4-1/3 cup of hot water. Let this steep for about 1 minute.
Add some hot water to the 2nd cup. Using a spoon, transfer the cherry blossom from the 1st cup to the 2nd cup. Add more hot water to make 3/4 cup. Let the tea steep for another 1-2 minutes.
The sakura tea is now ready. Adjust the strength of the tea by adding more water from the first cup (step 2). You can also add a bit of sugar to taste.
