COURSE DETAILS
In this masterclass, we will trace the history of the South Korean tea industry from its beginnings in the 6th Century AD, through suppression of tea by Confucionism in the 14th century AD, the revival of Korean tea culture in the 19th century, and the growing interest in tea today.

The four main regions will be explored, with details of their history and cultivation today. And we will be discussing and tasting a selection of green teas and their seasons, ‘hwang-cha’ (a semi-oxidised tea), black teas, and Korean dark tea.

In the afternoon we will explain the South Korean ‘tea ceremony’ with an explanation of the Korean approach to tea brewing, the utensils used, the brewing method itself, and the current movement that aims to encourage more people to revive the traditional ritualistic brewing ceremony and extend the growing love of tea throughout the country.
