type: green

region: jeju island

ingredients: green tea

caffeine: medium

price level: $$$$

The island of Jeju (Cheju-do) is located south of mainland South Korea. Largely tourist, there is a great volcano and National Park located at its center. As the hills sweep up to meet the peak, vast and beautiful fields of green tea can be found at 4 different gardens. This style of Korean tea is similar to a Japanese Sencha in that it is lightly shaded and steamed during processing. Altogether, this tea lends itself a beautiful, curly leaf, an aromatic bouquet and a smooth cup. We are proud to offer our very first South Korean tea.

      It's very similar to a sencha while having some of the smoky qualities of a Chinese gunpowder. While somewhat astringent, later steepings reveal a sweeter aftertaste than one might expect.

      Pleasantly grassy, with a savory note afterwards. It's very similar to a sencha while having some of the smoky qualities of a Chinese gunpowder. While somewhat astringent, later steepings reveal a sweeter aftertaste than one might expect. A cup that'll stand up well to other teas, but perhaps leave you longing for sencha.
