Jirisan is a mountain in Hadong county and is home to Korea’s highest grade green tea, created using the oldest picking and processing traditions. Instead of relying on industrial machines and artificial shading, the tea bushes of Jirisan are shaped by the mountain’s natural characteristics, giving Jirisan green tea its wild, raw flavour. Jirisan is also the tallest mountain in mainland Korea, 2nd to Hanlasan in Jeju Island.
‘Ggoma’ means ‘small child’ in ‘Toh-bakimal’ (Pure-Korean), and is the name given to this tea because they are young leaves. Younger leaves are generally graded higher and have more complex subtleties in flavour.
