From Dao Tea

The Experience

Anthony of Taize, in The Korean Way of Tea, said “The taste of the first cup of tea, made with water that is far below boiling point, on a palate freshly awakened, is so intense, so unexpectedly rich and varied, so indescribably fragrant, that, from that day on, the only question can be ‘when shall I be able to go back and drink that tea again?’”. Having tried this tea, we know what he meant.

Well Being

The meandering Seomjingang River and the breeze from the South Sea nurture the mountainous soils of Mount Jiri. For centuries, Korean monks have sought green tea from this pristine land to clear the mind, soothe the senses… and perhaps provide a window to enlightenment.

Tea Master Kim Jong Yeol

Master Kim Jong Yeol exchanged urban chaos and a corporate job for a farmer’s life in a stunning mountain village. He honours the ancient tea tradition of Hwagae by harvesting the leaves from ancient bushes, handmaking sublime tea, and sharing a cup with those who knock on his door.

Tips for a multi-sensorial tea experience

Pre-warm a 250ml tea-pot and cups with hot water; empty the pot. Place 2g to 3g of tea in the pot. Gently pour on water, which is between 65°C and 70°C, and allow 90 seconds to brew. Serve the tea, using a strainer if needed, in the pre-heated cups, pouring up to the last drop. One more infusion can be made adding plum blossoms, yielding an amazing floral bouquet over fresh notes of green tea.

This is an expensive, touchy, hard to work with tea. And it’s amazing.

Pro tip: Normally I’m not a stickler for making sure your water doesn’t boil before brewing (I let it boil then cool pretty regularly), but for this it really makes a difference. Boiling cuts back on the brightness of the cup exponentially.

Tried the leaves over vanilla ice cream. Not really my cup of tea, but it was relatively tasty.

This is a mild and very pleasant Green tea from Korea. It has a slightly toasted taste mixed with a classic smooth green tea flavor. Pedro over at Dao Tea was kind enough to send me a sample box of some of the finer Korean Teas of Tea Master Kin Jong Yeol.
