Jirisan Jookro Jungjak

Posted on May 23, 2014 at 11:50 AM

Introducing this year's first freshly harvested, organically grown, Jungjak nokcha (green tea). It comes from a 3rd flush tea harvest which was handpicked and processed in early May 2014.


This tasty nokcha comes by way of well known Jirisan tea artisan and third generation tea farmer Cho Yun Seok of Jukro (Jook-ro) Tea Company. By the way, Jukro means 'bamboo dew' and Jukro Tea Company in Hwagae Valley is comparatively speaking a well-known mid-size tea company within Korea.


This pioneering tea family has been passionately growing and making nokcha since 1962 in Jirisan, Hwagae Valley and is known for producing a well-made uniquely tasting 'bamboo dew' green tea.


Currently, Jukro tea products are steadily becoming known to the international community where Mr. Cho's well made tasty tea products and his tireless marketing efforts have resulted in his company's products being exported to a few European countries.


Mr. Cho's passion for making tasty tea using traditional Korean tea processing methods can be experienced in this 2014 freshly harvested Jungjak tea offering. Minimally processed, this tea was vigorously tossed and hand roasted. He has to wear multiple pairs of gloves due to blistering hot temperatures that the iron cauldron reaches when he is roasting the tea leaves.

This freshly harvested well made and tasty organically grown Jungjak leaf nokcha (green tea) is now available!

Live well,

Jirisan Gabriel
