Tea Review: Organic Boseong Black Tea (Boseong Woonhae Tea Plantation)

Organic Boseong Black Tea
Boseong Woonhae Tea Plantation/보성운해녹차
Type: Black
Origin: South Korea, Boseong
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 208° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 3 minutes

The dry leaves have a floral and fragrant wood with notes of something similar to muscatel, reminding me slightly of Darjeeling.

The coppery orange infusion has a sweet aroma of baked fruit (persimmon?) and flowers.  The taste is almost sugar sweet, though not cloyingly so, with a long, sweet, floral finish.

This tea held up fairly well through three infusions.  After the first infusion, the floral notes in flavor and aroma had become prominent and the finish became dryer.

At this time, Boseong Woonhae Tea Plantation does not have an website.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
