  • Inside Story

    Jeju Island is South Korea's largest volcanic island. It has an oval shape with a beautiful big mountain Hallasan (1950m) in the center. Tea has been brought here in 7th century, but around 14th century due to political change confucianism & Buddhism was banned and temples and plantations were abandoned & destroyed. After independence in 1945 the cultivation of tea has reborn. This is a unique black tea from Seogwang tea estate. Traditionally Korea produces mainly superior green teas but in recent years a wonderful black teas are on rise.

  • Ambience

    DRY LEAF: Curly little leaves of aubergine colour with sharp pointy edges and plentiful golden buds, releasing divine aroma of cherry blossoms, sweet honey and wood.
    INFUSED LEAF: Small & sleek, twisted leather brown leaves breathing out the scent of sweet warm pears, cantaloupe melon & cinnamon.
    LIQUOR: The cup has a bright marmalade colour. The aroma of cherry blossoms mingles with warm sticky pear & cinnamon. Cup is rich, sweet, smooth and full. Strong cinnamon after-taste with absolutely no acidity and a little "pick me up" astringency.
