Taste of Korea Tea Gift sets is the perfect gift for visiting friends and family during special occasions. This set represents the traditional and vibrant flavors of Korea.
Buddha's Woojeon - One of the most elegant representations of Korean green tea with its deep floral taste that is both subdued and mysterious. Only less than five pounds are commissioned each year to be made by one of the best tea producers in Korea.
Buddha's Balhyo - Yearly commissioned by the same producer as Buddha's Woojeon and skillfully roasted to bring out the exquisite floral taste with cacao notes. This producer picks the amount of leaves that were ordered and allows the trees to grow a long and healthy life.
Hwahoo - Late March is one of the earliest times to pick tea when there are barely any buds on the tree and snow is still on the ground. These are the first shoots and most aromatic with an intense sweetness. Less than 5 pounds are made each year from sixty-year-old, semi-wild tea trees.
White Lotus - Delicately dried leaves of the white lotus bring out an excellent savory taste with deep floral notes.
Artemisia - Earthy, pungent sweetness, with notes of ripe pumpkin and toasted sesame seeds
Mistletoe - Woody, maple syrup, and extremely satisfying for the soul.
Mulberry - The dehydrated leaves of the white mulberry tree have a unique flavor that reminds us of turmeric, roasted chestnuts, white pepper
Wild Pear - Heirloom Wild Pears are ancestors of edible pears rich in vitamins. The taste is naturally sweet and slightly tart. Tastes best when steeped for long periods.
