From the tea fields of South Korea to the tastes in your home.
Our mission started Dec. 1, 2011 with the goal of importing the highest quality of select, organic teas and herbs directly from the tea fields of South Korea.
We compare our teas to the mainstream thought that tea variety and quality of teas is exclusive to Japan or China.
Consider that Hadong County (South Korea) Green Tea Matcha has passed the rigorous tasting and quality standards of Starbucks. Our Guava Fruit tea and Ginseng root teas are unavailable in other regions in the world. Few in the U.S. market even know of flavorful Burdock root tea or have ever sampled the sweet-to-sour tastes of Goji berry or Schisandra berry teas. Our variety is unparalleled when compared to Japanese or Chinese offerings.
Few realize that Korea is the oldest and largest producer of tea products after China and Japan. And, through Government focused and support, cultivation area and annual tea production of Korean tea has been rapidly increasing in all facets over the past 20 years. This is balanced with focus on environmental, trade and human rights policies that promote women in business ownership and environment-friendly zones that Tastes of Tea advocates for sustainable growth.
There are three major tea regions in Korea that include Hadong, Boseong, and Jeju. These regions have optimal eco-systems for growing a variety of leaf, floral, fruit as well as root teas. These 3-major tea growing areas have ecologically balanced and pollutant-free climates and enforced policies that protect the peace between soil, air and water which is symbolic of Korean culture. If you want to buy quality, select teas – consider the soil, air and water policies of the regions from which you buy tea products.
Our mantra at Tastes of Tea is to infuse a tea culture that has shaped our nation for more than 2000 years into the tastes and lifestyles that you enjoy in the homes of these United States every day. Variety and information, such as how various teas can provide health and healing benefits is a value that we wish to provide each buyer and end customer of our products.
We buy tea directly from the farms of South Korea and our motto is, “From the tea fields of South Korea to the tastes in your home”. In this, we look to bring all the traditions, health and healing that has survived us as a country for over 2000 years to the nation of America where we call our own home at Tastes of Tea.
We appreciate your consideration and we welcome your comments and suggestions. Thank you again for visiting Tastes of tea. We would be delighted if you had the opportunity to sample our teas through this site. We will always do our best to improve the health of everyone who drinks tea.
Best wishes, Katie Insoon Park
