Our tea trip to South Korea was fantastic. Hosted there was the Internationally-regarded World Tea Forum, where delegates from countries all over the world were able to attend a tasting for some of the most incredible teas produced in the region.
Each delegate was honoured with a letter of appointment assisting in judging the World tea forum championship and were also treated to the wonderful culture, foods and unique attractions of South Korea.
The teas sampled were rare and of beautiful quality, and the flavour notes were very unique to the area and terroir.
During our time in South Korea we also learnt about the Korean Tea Ceremony, the language used to describe tea in Korea, and how to brew Korean tea. We also took a lot of photos.
Overall, the trip was excellent – and definitely worthwhile for any tea enthusiast or industry specialist
