Plucked by hand from the shady mountainsides of Hadong Gyeongnam, South Korea, our Daejak is a one-of-a-kind green tea experience. Bushes are manually dug and seeded freestanding amid groves of trees. After being picked, freshly withered tea leaves are briefly submerged in a vat of boiling water, removed, drained, and then fired. An unusual method with echoes of both Chinese and Japanese tea production - but something altogether different. Our producer, Cho Yun Suk has been producing award-winning green tea in Hadong for 25 years.  Savory, floral, and toasty with umami. You have to taste it to believe it.

Notes of almonds, toasted kale, and brussels sprouts.
