This black tea comes from the luxurious gardens of Jeju Island, located just a few kilometers off the Korean coast. Formed by volcanic eruptions, Jeju is prime location for the Osulloc tea farms.
Korea Pu Er Shou 2019 Jeju Organic
The Korean gardens on Jeju Island offer an aged tea in Pu Er Shou style. This terroir, close to the sea and characterised by volcanic soil, encourages a micro-enzymatic fermentation that is distinct from that those using the same process in China.
The result is a dark, warm beverage that pleasantly fills the mouth with its cereal flavours. Sweet earthy notes then develop, followed by a slight sweet persistence.
A great tea to initiate oneself to Pu Er type tea and for the curious.
