TEA OF TEAS
In 1861, renowned cartographer Kim Jeongho detailed a map of Korea referred to as the Map of the Great Eastern State, on which he designated the hills at the southwest corner of the Korean Peninsula as Mount Mongjung. Located on this mountain is the Mongjung Mountain Tea Plantation, where ocean winds from the crystalline waters of the south ascend the hills of Boseong's coastline, enveloping the field with its fine mist. These coastal hills boast four distinct seasons, essential to the superior quality of Tea of Tea's green tea. The cold winter climate condenses the sap, and the first leaves of spring come into bud nourished by this enriched fluid. This unique process is what sets apart the matchless taste of Tea of Teas.
In 2002, Mongjung Mountain's green tea was presented with the Gold Standard at the Great Taste Awards in London, hosted by the Guild of Fine Foods, where its excellent quality was validated among international tea experts. The leaves of this award-winning green tea maintain their superior quality even though they are taken from the seventh round of harvest.
Commitment to Excellence
Cultivation within Mongjung Mountain Tea Plantation is carried out with the utmost integrity and with a sincere commitment to capturing the pure excellence of nature. Having replenished the soil, using purely organic compost since 1994, the plantation was awarded with organic certification in Korea in 2002 and with 100% USDA organic certification in 2007. Inspectors from GOCA, a United States organic certification agency, concluded that no remaining traces of agricultural chemicals were found upon reviewing the water flow, wind and soil of the Mongjung Mountain Tea Plantation. In 2011, the brand Tea of Teas was created to promote our Mongjung Mountain green teas worldwide.
We cordially invite you to enjoy the fruits of our labor: a pure aroma and a deep, rich taste.
Dagelet Island Green Tea is cultivated on a small plot of 1.6 acre land on the unpolluted remote Ulleung island ("Dagelet Island") 120 kilometers east of the Korean peninsula. The field was created by planting seeds from Mongjung Mountain Tea Plantation as well as local green tea seeds. Like Tea of Teas and Wild Orchard Green Tea, Dagelet Island Green Tea is farmed with the strictest 100% organic standards. Thriving in the volcanic soil enriched with ample sea mist, Dagelet Island Green Tea boasts a unique and soft flavor.
