    James & Denny,

    Must have at least 10 posts on Kim Jong Yeol’s balhyochas as I have been drinking this stuff for about 10 years now. Including aged and re-roasted experiments on it.

    More homework for poor Denny….. Hahaha

      Hi Matt,

      Right on! We are very much Korean tea newbies, but have been enjoying these from Arthur a lot.

    I’m glad to see you guy’s were quite impressed with this tea. Korean teas flavor profiles and aromas are unique. I think the last time I had Kim Jong Yeols ” Hwangcha” as it was called then was 2013. What’s interesting is that she doesn’t make any green tea at all. All the pickings, Ujeon, Sejak, Jungak etc. All get mixed together to make her Bahlyocha, just the way her grandmother taught her.
    I’ve always thought of the flavors as malted grain, honey, some florals and with a cooling eucalyptus sensation. Eucalyptus not being a flavor or and aroma but a cooling sensation in the sinuses.
    I’ll be participating in Arthur’s tea buy this year and Kim Jong Yeols Bahlyocha is the main tea I’m after.
