    ABOUT THE GROWER

    Kim Jong Yeol left a corporate life in Busan to pursue his passion for tea on his family farm in Hadong. The trees on the farm are over 80 years old and are growing naturally, spread randomly across the hill slopes. Each microbatch of teas is hand-processed by Kim himself so each lot is unique and every harvest is consistently outstanding.
