Jirisan 2013 Farewell

Posted on December 31, 2013 at 6:35 PM

Hello everyone!

I apologize that I haven't had much time to blog since I left Hwagae Valley, South Korea for the USA in late November 2013. However, I am slowly getting back into it. 


My last few days prior to leaving Hwagae Valley I spoke with and thanked many of my friends, who also happen to be very passionate tea artisans, for freely sharing their knowledge about nokcha and balhyocha, their selfless friendship, and imbibing in copious amounts of exquisite green tea in Jirisan.

I have been fortunate to have cultivated for the past 5 years excellent tea sources which will surely help me to deliver fresh and tasty nokcha to all my tea friends going forward in 2014 and beyond! 

I will also be offering newly acquired 2013 nokcha and balhyocha in the near future, as well as 2014 nokcha and balhyocha offerings come spring harvest. So stay tuned!

Thank you for your patience and continued patronage!

Happy New Year!

Live well,

Jirisan Gabriel

Welcome to "The Tea Files"

A tea blog about my tea journey and trekking experiences into the unique world of organically grown and exquisite artisan nokcha (green tea), balhyocha (fermented/oxidized) leaf teas, yasaeng (wild) rock teas, and semi-wild leaf teas from Jirisan, Hwagae Valley, South Korea,  the birthplace of Korean nokcha.
