Tea from Korea - Cheku Do Oolong
Also known under the name of “island of the Gods”, this beautiful subtropical island which is a UNESCO Heritage site is located in the Southwest of Korea. Grown in a protected environment, the tea plants benefit, at the heart of an exuberant nature, from a rich soil, a mild and humid climate, with rain but also a lot of sunshine.
Among the teas grown on the island, one of them is a dark oolong with large twisted leaves, the Cheju-Do.
When brewed, it delivers a liquor with, at the first taste, the roasted notes which are typical of a dark oolong. These notes recede quickly to develop into a perfume of stewed fruits which end, on the palate, with a subtle and pleasant sweet flavour.
