Kim Ki-duk's vivid depiction of the eternal cycle of seasons, 'Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring', could well have inspired this outstanding Korean black tea rarity. Plucked and processed entirely by hand in the stunning setting of the Jiri Mountains, this one-of-a-kind specialty yields an incredible five steeps – each as rich and full-bodied as the first. In order to achieve such aromatic longevity, the leaves undergo a prolonged, double oxidation kick-started by fresh, early-morning dew. A vigorous roasting rounds off its complex flavor with booming notes of hearty malt. Subtle whiffs of wild greens and vanilla and its soft cocoa finish make this black tea a delicacy to be savored time and time again.
