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 Hadong 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.

Sophisticated tea

Beautiful, sophisticated tea. Overall the taste is quite light, with a slight smoke note. Picked it in the shop by smelling samples. Was funny to find out this was the most expensive one. Happy to know it is a staple and not limited edition.

Ausnahmetee von höchster Güte

Ich bin eigentlich monomanischer Grüntee-Trinker, aber beim Woori mache ich definitiv eine Ausnahme. Die Kombination aus dunkler Schokolade, herben Erdnüssen und dem dennoch deutlich spürbaren Umami haben mich überzeugt, öfter mal auf die "Dunkle Seite" zu wechseln. Ich möchte diesen Tee in meinem Bestand nicht mehr missen!!!!

Exquisite

Even it has a strong character, it has a unique delicacy.
Wild but sophisticate and delicate.
I can’t but recommend it! Just try it! 🫖
