Korean green tea (nokcha)
Green tea from the spring harvest in the Korean Jirisan mountain range, picked in late April. Wonderfully processed, lightly rolled leaves of silvery green appearance and a delicate fresh slightly spicy aroma. Nearly transparent greenish in a cup with a well-balanced sweet fresh spring and clear flavor with tones of green pepper, citrus, and a young bamboo. The tea is packed in 40g aluminum bags, a paper box will be added if you order two bags.
Preparation: Allow 1 teaspoon (4 g) of tea for 200 ml of boiled water, cool down to 65 - 70°C, and steep for 1 minute. You can prepare more infusions in a similar way.
After three years, finally fresh tea from Korean Hadong! Due to the covid measures, the inability to send tea by EMS, and the isolation of a farmer who had to overcome the difficulties of resuming production, we did not obtain these teas (Ujeon, Sejak, and Hwangcha) until this year. And it's worth it. These teas come from small productions, from semi-wild tea trees shaded by trees.
Teas from Hadong county, South Korea
Most of Korea’s green tea is cultivated in large, commercial tea gardens in Boseong county in South Jeolla Province since the 1950s. However, there are teas grown on the slopes of Mt. Jiri close to Ssanggye-sa temple in Hwagae Valley. This tea-growing area is located in Hadong County in South Gyeongsang Province and is the original, historic home of Korean green tea. The teas are hand-picked and processed and are some of Korea´s finest.
In the 9th-century tea bush cuttings were brought from China and planted on Mt. Jiri. These tea bushes have produced many offspring plants via seed planting. Today the tea bushes in this area are referred to as being ‘semi-wild’. The bushes have not been bred with imported tea bush cultivars (as they have been elsewhere in Korea), so they have retained a flavor profile that is unique to the Mt. Jiri region. The teas have smaller leaves and are sweet and intense in flavor. Pesticides are not used in the Mt. Jiri area and only a minimum of fertilizer is used. (source Tea Trekker)
