Organic Wild Korean Green Tea: 3 picking
Organic Wild Korean Green Tea
A mild green tea with a clean sweet taste.
This Premium Korean Green Tea is a special treat because it is grown wild and is processed by hand. The tea farmer told me that his tea has more minerals and a fuller tea taste compared to those teas that are grown in rows and harvested with machinery.
If you are new to this tea you are in for a rare treat. The 3rd flush is called Joon Jak and it is especially suited for those of you who like a mild green tea with a clean sweet taste. Some say the scent is reminds them of freshly mowed hay, however the unique taste comes from the fact these teas are baked and not steamed like their Japanese counterparts. I do hope you discover these amazing wild green teas for yourselves.

Korean Green Tea is a delicate, fine tea. In Korean it is called Jaksul Nokcha which translates to sparrows beak. The Korean way to steep this tea is to cool the water temperature to 70 c
Korean Tea Sets: Traditional Korean tea sets have a separate bowl in which to cool the water and then decant the infusion. Warm up the pottery with hot water. Add 1 to 3 teaspoons of tea.
Steep the tea approximately 20 seconds and then decant the tea into the bowl and serve into the tea cups. This ensures that the tea taste is even and balanced. You can increase the time for subsequent steepings.
Korean Green Tea is not meant to be served piping hot. By following these steps you can get several great infusions from your tea.
Hot Alternative: my mom personally likes her tea hot and she loves the mild flavorful Korean green tea. What I do in this instance is I use 1 to 2 teaspoons and put it into a cold tea set. The water I use is 90c 194F and do a fairly rapid steeping 15 to 20 seconds. The downside is you won’t be able to make as many infusions.
