South Korean Green
The leaves of our South Korean Green tea are thin, curly, and forest green. This tea originates from a small farm and has a strong character and vegetal notes. Spinach notes are prominent with a juicy mouthfeel and some lingering astringency.
Ingredients: South Korean Green Tea
Recommended Brew Time: 2-3 minutes
Recommended Amount: 1 level teaspoon of tea for 8oz of water
Recommended Temperature: 180 F
This tea is savory and refreshing. It reminds me of collard greens and well steamed brussel sprout with a hint of sweetness. I think the mouth-feel is more thin and refreshing than juicy, but I’ve always brewed it a bit lightly, out of preference. It’s as fortifying as a bowl of miso soup. As the autumn chill intensifies each night I find this tea my favorite first tea of the day. It’s an enriching change from the fukamushi sencha I usually drink. I think this a great introduction to Korean tea or as staple of any cupboard.
