When did tea first integrate into Korean culture? Ancient texts date back 5,000 years mentioning PaeksanCha or “White Mountain Tea, ” but the widely accepted story is that Indian Princess Heo Hwang Ok of Ajodhya brought the gift of tea seeds upon her marriage to the King of Gaya in 56 A.D.

A Few of out Favorite Things!

Saturday, October 1, 2016 7:11:00 AM America/Denver

It’s officially Autumn and officially October! How wonderful is this? In tea culture, all year offers wonderful tea themes and opportunities.

We smile at kids at school, and remember our own time there. We smell autumn and weather changes on the air and we are reminded of rolling in leaves and carving pumpkins. We are reminded of Halloween nights in our favorite costumes, and getting to wear a brand new pair of boots into the rain or snow. At Happy Lucky’s, we’re always in love with dead leaves.Read More
