There are both good and bad things about a large tea chain offering Korean tea. The bad is that these big tea chains often don't store tea appropriately so the tea becomes somewhat stale. They also often stock the cheapest tea and sell it using descriptions that often misrepresent the tea. If someone who has never tried Korean tea is first exposed to this improperly stored tea that is of less quality, they may feel that all Korean tea is not so good. On the other hand the good things about big tea chains selling Korean tea is that it exposes a wider audience to Korean tea. This is likely to implore tea drinkers to explore other Korean teas (see an extensive list here). Also it allows the sale of relatively expensive Korean tea for an inexpensive price that anyone can enjoy. This sort of leads to another point- it makes Korean tea less pretentious and exclusive and more casual.
The first infusion delivers distinct floral-orange initial tastes along with limey, pondy, green wood depth. Bitter notes slip by with fruity suggestions of sweetgrass and hay. The aftertaste is very long and transitions to a bland lime taste with distant floral suggestions. The sweet orange-melon florals stay in the long aftertaste with notes of lime as well. The orange taste is much like that of the Jeju citrus famous in that region, the Jeju gamgyul. The mouthfeel is chalky mainly on the tongue and lips and coats the mouth in a chalky-stickiness that reaches the mid throat, this mouthfeel really satisfies as it stretches the aftertaste.
The second infusion is of lime, chalky strongish bitter pushing at moderating sweetness. This initial taste has a long distinct tangy orange peel aftertaste. There are some very distant florals on the breath minutes later after the orange taste weakens a bit. After these tastes have disappeared a saltiness is left in the mouth. The mouthfeel remains very full.
The third infusion starts with distinct rose flavours early and stretch slowly into a lime, almost dry wood, taste- a very simple profile. The aftertaste contains bitter-bland florals with some very faint orange still left. There is a saltiness that is left on the breath. The mouthfeel is all coating, chalky, and thick and is becoming drying at times. The qi is felt in the eyes, making them clear and heavy. The chest and shoulders feel a little relief- the qi is pretty mild here but not insignificant.
The fourth infusion has faint florals with a light bland wood taste that gets more bland as it stretches into the aftertaste. A faint floral sweetness punches through. Minutes later a salty aftertaste emerges.
The fifth infusion is of faint florals with a wood-lime base. A subtle salty-lime aftertaste is left in the still solid mouthfeel. This simple taste repeats itself in the sixth infusion but is more bland and woody now.
Found that this tea can turn bitter fast with either too much leaf or too hot of water. Less water and cooler temperature yeilds much better results with this tea.
