Cherry Blossom Tasting, the "new" hanami

The much celebrated cherry-blossoms are in full bloom here in Tokyo. The beautiful white cherry blossoms are a sight to behold. The word for Cherry Blossom viewing in Japanese is "hanami".

Today I discovered Cherry Blossom Tasting and it is worth trying, trust me!

Find yourself a cherry blossom.
 Next, remove the petals.
Then, peel off and remove the Stamens and Pistil (yes, the pointy things with yellow dust)
 You should end up with this:

  Finally, sip it like the world's tiniest straw.  So surprisingly delicious!!    
It's Cherry Blossom Tasting Time!! ENJOY!!!!
