2014 Korean Green Tea


New teas continue to arrive almost daily as the time has come for us to start receiving seasonal spring teas from Japan and Korea.

Yes… I just said KOREA…..as in SOUTH KOREA!

It as been 4 years since we first introduced these wonderful and unique green tea from Hadong County and the environ of Mt.Jiri, South Korea. For lovers of fine green teas, these teas are distinctively different from both Chinese and Japanese green teas. And, Hadong County tea is available in very limited quantities comparative to spring green teas from China and Japan and other tea producing regions of South Korea.

These are the same teas from the same producer ( 2014 crop ) at virtually the same prices as we sold these teas for in 2010 and 2011, the last two years when we featured these Korean green teas. While these teas are pricey ( they are pricey in South Korea, too) this is a great opportunity for our tea enthusiast customers to experience FRESH, FRESH, FRESH versions of these delicious teas at a fair price.

Additionally, we have also received the first of our 2014 Japanese green teas, along with some exciting new teas, one of which has been created just for Tea Trekker. We are unpacking these teas now and will feature them in a post and on the website in the next few days.

LIfe is good !


Our 2010 Korean Green Teas are Here

We are delighted to announce that our Korean spring green teas – Ujeon, Sejak and Jungjak –  have arrived and are now posted for sale on our website teatrekker.com.

Additional tasting notes and other bits of  information will be posted in a few days, but we wanted to post the teas ASAP and alert everyone that the teas are here.  The tea is as delicious and sound as we remember it to be when we tasted it in Korea.

Our selections are organic and grown close to Ssanggye-sa temple in Hwagae Valley ( Hadong County, South Gyeongsang Province ) which geographically runs into the south-west slopes of Mt. Jiri.  We have held the prices of our Korean teas to a very reasonable level  ( ie. prices – in – Korea – prices ) so that those interested in experiencing  these premium teas can do so.
