Traditional Korean tea
South Korea Green Op tea is traditionally prepared in South Korea using the Ku-Jung-Ku-Po method: roasting nine times, then rubbing nine times to extract as much tannin as possible from the leaves. Even today, South Korea has a unique way of preparing tea. The result can be seen and felt: the small leaves that are rolled by hand contain all the aromas of the plant.

Korea invites itself in your cup with this Korean green tea
Korean green tea is still rare in France, as a large part of its production is consumed in its country of origin.
In Korea, tea is mainly grown on the island of Jeju. After the leaves are harvested, they are steamed, as is done for Sencha in Japan, or roasted at high temperatures, as is done in China.
The method used affects the taste of green teas. Steaming gives the tea a flavor similar to Japanese Sencha, i.e. sweet and fresh. Roasted tea is deeper and fruitier. It has roasted notes while remaining delicate.
Finally, a last Korean practice called Gu Jung Gu Po consists in roasting and rolling the leaves nine times. This allows to remove the tannin contained in the tea, for a more umami flavor. This is what is used for our organic Korean green tea.
