We are delighted to add two amazing NEW
Organic Green Teas from Korea to our catalog! Most people associate green tea with China and Japan, but few know that Korea has an almost 2,000 year old history of tea production and tea culture within its borders. Widely unknown, Korean Green Tea is one of the best kept secrets (shhh!). We are delighted to add these excellent representations of Korea's top two teas - Organic Woojeon Green Tea and Organic Sejak Green Tea - to our catalog on Valentine's Day. Who said "green" can't be the new "red"?! Grown on the volcanic island of Jeju, these organic certified teas are infused with the salty sea breezes and fertile soil of this pristine area of the world.
Organic Korea Woojeon Green Tea This is an excellent representation of the highest grade of organic green tea from Korea. Plucked in early to mid-April, this tea has a beautiful, smooth cup of concentrated vegetal flavor that lingers in the mouth and evaporates on the mid-tongue. The tight, small dark green leaves have the occasional bright green wisp of a curl that hints at the light yellow, jade-like liquor to come. Its cup is thicker in mouthfeel than our other Korean green tea, Organic Sejak, and represents the most premium of Korean Green Teas.
Organic Korea Sejak Green Tea More akin to a Japanese green tea flavor profile than a Chinese green tea flavor profile, this Organic Sejak Green Tea has a brothy and boldly vegetal cup that pleasantly lingers in the mouth with smooth, mild astringency. The liquor color reminds of an early spring dandelion and the wet leaves smell of dried straw and cooked asparagus with a brighter and thinner cup than our Organic Woojeon Green Tea. PS - If you like Sencha Green, then try this tea! It is a great alternative for someone looking to replace their Sencha with a new organic tea or want to mix it up.

Over the years, we have received many requests for an organic USA-grown green tea. But, unfortunately our search was fruitless because the United States is not an ideal tea growing location.

Making Dragonwell tea is a complex process: it requires many hours of manual labor, skilled workers, and just the right cultivation methods to produce one of the finest teas in China.

In recent years, you’ve probably noticed beverages containing rooibos showing up in stores all over the place. Most of these products are ostensibly “healthy” tea drinks, so we naturally assume that rooibos is good for us – and thankfully, we’re right! We've carried a sizable selection of organic rooibos blends for years, but many people remain [...]
