The Jiri Mountain Tea Shop was the very first online tea shop to sell the 2013 harvest starting last week. The tea in question is a completely traditionally made first pick ujeon tea from one of the most traditional tea picking areas of Jiri mountain- land on the banks of the Seomjin river. The tea is produced by Lee Deok-Ju whose family has been producing traditional tea from the same area for 40 years.
The Jiri Mountain Tea Shop web site also offers a sample pack of 2013 Jirisan "Wild Korean Rock Tea". It is likely an balhyocha produced in a way similar as this traditionally made tea.
One has just updated the List of English Online Korean Tea Vendors and Their Korean Teas. Watch in the coming weeks as new 2013 teas make their way to these sites.
