1. Spring Persimmon Leaf
In the earliest moments of spring, the vibrant foliage of Hadong Valley's wild persimmon trees is in its most luscious state. All the sustenance stored throughout the wintertime converges to form the season's first leaves packed with nourishment and plucked before the fruit twines around the delicate branches. Although the persimmon is renowned for its juicy fruit, its supple leaves are a trove of vitamins and have been consumed in China, Korea, and Japan for ages.
Budding in the untouched valley of Hadong, Artemisia - a part of the mugwort family - is wild-picked in early spring. This floral shrub provides a dainty flavor, subtle sweetness, and seductive aroma. In a long-standing tradition, Korea and Japan use it to flavor and naturally hue rice cakes. Delectable and delightful, it has the taste of a perfect pumpkin pie.
