National Cherry Blossom Festival:
Our Cherry Blossom White Tea gets its name from the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. In 1912 Mayor Yukio Ozaki of Tokyo presented the city of Washington DC with 3,000 cherry trees. In 1915 the US Government gave Tokyo a gift of flowering dogwood trees and gifts have continued in the spirit of friendship between the two countries since.
