Product Description


“Dae” of Dejak means “big”, and as far as Korean teas go, this is big leaf tea. After Jeung-cha, the leaves experience the Korean wok, which has some differences from their Chinese counterparts, most noticeable would be the time and heat used to finish the leaves in the wok. In Korea the wok may be as hot as 800 degrees, requiring the full concentration of the tea master as to not scorch any leaves. The end result is complex; they haven’t cooked long enough to pick up any deep toasty or roasty notes, and the tea is still vibrant and full of life. The flavor is sweet, savory, with a grain like base note.

Steep Time: 20 seconds
Water Temp: 140°
TSP per 8 oz.: 1
Infusions: 5-10

Infuser basket included: Yes Cups included: 2 Color: Sage, red, gold About Gongfucha: Gongfucha translates to “tea with great skill.” The earliest detection of the gongfucha practice was found in the Chaozhou region of China, between Fujian and Guangdong. Rather than a symbolic event, gongfucha is a service intending to realize the art of tea toward a science by controlling the variables of tea quality and quantity, water temperature, brew time, and teapot size. About Yixing Clay: The locale of yixing clay is the Yixing area of Jiangsu (east), China. The red clay is fired, but lacks any glazing process to retain the natural pores of the clay. This is important because these pores retain the flavor of the tea with each steeping. Legend has it that one will not even need to add tea leaves to a well-used, yixing pot after 20 years, as the pot will have absorbed so much flavor and aroma, it will generate the tea itself.
