While South Korea is better known for its green tea, it does also produce excellent black teas, such as this sejak, which is made by the Choi family. Its leaves are harvested in late April, and benefit from some of the best soil in Boseong. A fantastic sejak!

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional
Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
