Drawing on 3 generations of experience, Cho Yun-Seok tried his hand at black tea. This attempt proved to be a master stroke and Jukro is one of the best black teas in the world.
The powder version reveals new aspects of this renowned tea.
Its thick and subtly powdered texture brings to mind the strength of pure cocoa, mixed with floral, fruity and spiced fragrances. A unique experience!

Suggestion of preparation
Its leaves have been turned into a very fine powder: as such, this tea is beaten rather than infused.
It is prepared using a whisk, bowl and spatula.
It should be consumed immediately after preparation in order to enjoy its complexity in full.
1. Place 2 spatulas (or one level teaspoon).
2. Pour over 7cl of water heated to 195°F.
3. Holding the bowl in one hand, whisk the tea briskly (forming a "w") to obtain an attractive froth. Then taste.
