As a tea producing country, Korea is well known for its green tea, yellow tea and black tea. White tea is produced in very limited quantity and it is not widely available in Korea.

This white tea is harvested in spring 2018 from wild growth tea plantation in Jirisan, Hadong region in Korea. The tea plantation has been allowed to grow freely without any pruning or application of fertiliser and insecticide.

Unlike the tea grading system adopted in China, Korean white tea is not graded. The harvested tea consists of mainly leaves with limited buds. It is withered and dried in an indoor environment instead of under the sun. Indulge yourself in this rare Korean white tea and it will surprise you with a mellow fruity scent reminiscent of spring.
