From Hankook Tea

Hand-harvested right before and after Ibha*, it is difficult not to appreciate the complexity of this tea. Teuksun still has the delicate and sweet flavor remnants of the first flush harvest leaves, which are interwoven beautifully with more mature, robust tones. Slightly sweet with an invigorating aroma, this tea is pleasing to the senses.
*Ibha = first day of summer (7th of the 24 seasonal divisions of the lunar calendar, falls on the 5th or 6th of May)

Origin: South Korea (Honam Tea Estate)
Ingredients: 100% Tea Leaves (camellia sinensis)
Harvest Time: Hand-harvested in May
Grade: Sejak (1st + 2nd Flush)
Taste: Delicate sweet flavor remnants of first flush leaves, interwoven beautifully with mature, robust tones.

On to the second one, randomly grabbing something that sounds like Tekken when you’re drunk of something???

Starts out tasting like grass like cotton candy. Smooth texture with a sweet note throughout. No overpowering green enemy of the meat diet or blades which we wear shoes to avoid.

This is unexpected as the leaf is darker than the previous leaf as well as… stem’ish?

Steep two is quite the same actually which is really pleasant. No bitterness coming out or changing notes.

Steep three is when the vegetable notes actually come out which is later than you’d think, even if we are taking about one to three. I would say something like squash laying around grass on a cool spring day while the sun is shining. Sweet and enjoyable.

The leaf ends up becoming larger than I thought it was as it absorbs the H2O. Continues to brew out longer than your typical green which is great. On to steep five with no reason to continue to comment as this is extra credit and all. This is a pretty solid leaf with longevity and my favorite part about a green when brews long, correctly that is, there is no dry mouth as I sip away cup after cup.

Of all the 4 Korean green teas I sampled from Hankook Tea, this one is hands down my favorite! Teuksun is complex – it is a mix of first and second flush teas, so you get that delicate, sweet and smoothness, but with a more robust grassy depth and a sweet tart finish! Love it!
