A rare and limited black tea of the highest grade from South Korea

Straight from Korea’s Hadong Mountains, this black tea specialty relies on a unique double oxidation, rounded off by intensive roasting, for its sweetly smoky umami flavors. The resulting tea’s strong character and special aroma make it particularly suited for fine cuisine.

Kim Ki-duk's vivid depiction of the eternal cycle of seasons, 'Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring', could well have inspired this outstanding Korean black tea rarity. Plucked and processed entirely by hand in the stunning setting of the Jiri Mountains, this one-of-a-kind specialty yields an incredible five steeps – each as rich and full-bodied as the first. In order to achieve such aromatic longevity, the leaves undergo a prolonged, double oxidation kick-started by fresh, early-morning dew. A vigorous roasting rounds off its complex flavor with booming notes of hearty malt. Subtle whiffs of wild greens and vanilla and its soft cocoa finish make this black tea a delicacy to be savored time and time again.

Gorgeous black

Th first brew is a bit acidic (I find), but the second and third brew are so gorgeous. A very unique flavour, quite malty and a little bit smoky, yet also sweet. A flavour that lingers in your mouth. This one pairs very well with dark (70% or more) chocolate!

The most unique and delicious black tea I have ever had

Worth the price many times over.

Smoky and exquisite

Absolutely delicious tea, works really well with sophisticated food next to it. Smoky notes are prominent, which makes it unique, but not entirely my taste.
