Jukro Now Available in Scotland
We are honoured to introduce Jukro tea to our range of teas from Korea. When Isabelle met the artisan tea farmer, Mr Cho, on his tea farm in Hadong during her recent trip to South Korea, she was bowled over by the taste of this hand-picked black tea. Chocolaty with buttery vanilla notes, some nutty tones and taste characteristics that are absolutely unique. Jukro tea already has a dedicated following in New York and Paris. We are delighted to introduce Jukro to Scotland. This tea is delicious and unique.
Jukro Green now on sale
Chosen by our team during their recent visit to the Jukro tea garden in Hadong, this tea is grown next to bamboo trees, near the top of the Jiri mountain. Watered by the pure waters of the Sumjin river, this tea is grown on organic soil and then hand picked by Mr Cho and his team. This fabulous tea is rich and buttery with vegetal notes and the immediate sweetness of summer stone fruit. Jukro Green fills the mouth with a velvety texture. Later infusions bring out pleasant zesty notes while keeping the full mouthfeel of the first infusion.

Keemun Mao Feng
Keemun Mao Feng is produced in Qimen County, Anhui Province China. Although Keemun black teas have only been produced since the 19th century, Keemun Mao Feng is one of the best Chinese black teas. It is picked earlier in the year than other Keemun varieties and it is the best Keemun that we have tasted this year. This tea is delicious on its own and can also be paired with food. In our recent tea and cheese pairing event in Bruntsfield, this nutty, chocolatey tea was the perfect accompaniment to a good Stilton.
