Beneath the shade of a pine grove in the Hwagae Valley in Hadong lie several groves of semi-feral tea bushes—the source material for this Balhyocha. The Cho Family has been producing organic tea styles here for three generations and have been decorated for their work in Chinese and Korean competitions. This black tea is made by tenets of an age-old, hand rolled style that requires patience and precision to lock in the sinuous taste, clear color and toastiness of true balhyocha.
