From The Steeping Room

Organic Boseong County Hwangcha is a difficult tea to classify. Korean hwangchas occupy a fairly broad range of oxidation levels. The term ‘hwangcha’ indicates that the tea is a yellow tea, but the leaves and the steeped liquor indicate that is a fairly well oxidized tea… basically moving into the territory of being a semi-oxidized tea which is why we also list it as an oolong tea.

But, difficulties with classification aside, this hwangcha is fantastic! The tea has no astringency and is sweet, with a crazy good aftertaste (a little grainy sweetness). There is some delicious nuttiness and slight creaminess as well.

Korea makes some extremely high quality teas, though they are difficult to find in the west. This tea is from Boseong County in the southern part of South Korea. It is a Jaksul pluck (two leaves and a bud), and was hand-picked in mid April, 2021.

I bought a Kamjove! I’ve downgraded in terms of setup I suppose, but I’ve come to terms that tea will remain near incompatible with working life without something like it, and it makes me sad to only get to have tea on the weekends. Also, using the thermos for everything was getting old. Anyway, the KamJove is pretty great. Some water gets trapped in the bottom sometimes, but whatever.

5.1g, K201 (about 175mL functional volume w/o leaf). Lower temps. today ranging from 190f-200f. No green tea taste but basically akin to the bottled fruity “teas” (the Brisks and Snapples) I was obsessed with as a kid. I still won’t buy more, but good hit of nostalgia and much more enjoyable than at the boiling temps. before.
