We offer you this oxidized Uricha tea produed in Hadong, a district famous nowadays for its high quality harvests. Historically dedicated to the production of the Kings' tea, this area creates excellent products thanks to a manual harvest and production (the Korean tea processing methods have been developed there). Very respectful of the traditions linked to the creation of their tea, the tea producers are careful not to use mecanic devices and to keep the particular spirit of their product which is now a cultural symbol.

The Koreans use a process which has been made famous by the Chinese, and which is called Deokkeum in Korean language. The tea is heated in a wok, which brings flavour while lessening the bitterness of the raw leaves. This brings out a light product, easy to drink, and with a masterly crafted taste.

Tea and health

Red teas (often called "black teas" in Western countries) don't have the positive reputation of green, white or oolong teas in terms of health benefits, but they nevertheless have interesting properties. They contain powerful carbohydrates (polysaccharides) which slow blood sugar absorption and can help in cases of diabetes or in a weight loss diet. The antioxidants present in red teas may also play a positive role in weight loss, along the other benefits they offer, such as helping decreasing the risks of cardiovascular diseases. They relax the muscles of bronchioles, thus helping regulate and enhance breathing.  Drinking red tea is also said to help bring cortisol (the "stress" hormone) levels back to normal more quickly and might even help recover sooner after a workout. Red teas have a reputation of containing an important amount of caffeine, but they still have less caffeine than coffee. So, drinking red teas offers caffeine's benefits - alertness, concentration... - but without its more negative effects.
