From Camellia Sinensis

This black tea comes from the luxurious gardens of Jeju Island, located just a few kilometers off the Korean coast. Formed by volcanic eruptions, Jeju is prime location for the Osulloc tea farms.

Leaning towards the more « atypical » side of our selection, the Jeju organic bears rich scents of dark chocolate. Its woody and mineral body (tree bark, forest floor) reveals fruity undertones and a finish that really steals the show: with its briny seaweed-like aromas, one can almost feel the maritime breeze.

Cultivar: Yabukita
Producer: Ferme Ossulloc
Altitude: 200m
Date of harvest: April 19, 2021

I don’t think I’ve ever had a Korean black tea before, and this is quite interesting.

It is surprisingly floral and sweet- like lilacs and honey.

There is a bit of a wet tree bark thing happening, which actually works really well with the soft floral notes.

I’ve been on the fence about this one with every CS order I’ve placed. Now I’ll be adding a sample in my next order!

Tea Travels: Greece. San Antonio Summerland, Mykonos. Good hotel. Weird location. Terrible tea. Couldn’t make it through my first cup. When we had some time later I steeped something better. This. The leaf is small to medium in size. Twisted tightly. Dark brown. The liquor color is amber and clear. We look out on donkeys grazing among the dry plant life. They have the most unique flowers here. Double and triple colors blooming on the same plant. It fills your mind with wonder like this tea fills your mouth. Smooth with astringency after 3 minutes. Smoky flavors along with ripe bark and roasted squash. And yet it is lighter than other black teas. Mykonos is a party island. It’s a lot of fun but to be honest my favorite part was visiting Delos. If you go you must visit Delos.

Gongfu!

DT’s new Korean Sejak comes from Jeju so it’s an area I know a little bit more about compared to other Korean tea productions – and I admit I was curious to see what a black tea from this terroir would be like. Honestly, I like the black sooo much more – but I don’t think that’ll surprise anyone who knows my general lack of enthusiasm for straight green teas…

I definitely packed this gaiwan preettyyyyy full so it’s strong, but with short steep times I’m really enjoying the almost syrupy liquor/mouthfeel and rich fragrant notes of lilac and fresh roses, chocolate liqueur, cocobolo and rosewood, and buckwheat honey. There’s sort of a jammy plum-like undertone, and the top notes are very perfumey – but not in an offensive kind of way! Definitely an interesting tea, and worth trying IMO if you’re interested in seeing the range that Korean black tea can offer!
