Korean Loose Leaf Tea (known locally as “Nok cha”) has a significant role in the nation’s culture. Since the Joseon Dynasty (1392–1897), traditional Tea ceremonies (called “darye” or “etiquette for Tea”) have been crucial to everyday life, particularly when unwinding from the hectic pace of modern Korean society. Production of the leaves, meanwhile, typically takes place in the rolling hills of Boseong.
Tea bushes were first planted in Korea during the Japanese occupation (1910–1945) and now account for over 40% of the country’s brews. Nevertheless, today, the word “Tea” can mean an assortment of hot or cold beverages made from different fruits and herbs.
For example, Yulmu Cha is a popular infusion sold in vending machines throughout South Korea, as is Omija-Cha (Magnolia Berry Tea).
Perhaps most popular, though, is Insam cha - best recognised in the west as Korean Ginseng Tea. This cuppa, deriving from the Panax quinquefolius plant, is caffeine-free while boasting earthy overtones and sweet, grassy undertones.
It has a close association with Traditional Chinese Medicine, as well as having health benefits proven by modern science. Yet, it isn’t the only Korean Tea to promote wellness.
It turns out that Korean Tea benefits the mind, body and soul in a plethora of ways. Korean FOP Woojeon, in particular, contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants capable of improving numerous ailments.
Among such health issues partly treated by Green Tea are cardiovascular complications, indigestion, mild anxiety, skin blemishes and weight problems.
Looking after your skin is one of the most vital things you can do, especially as it is the body’s largest organ. The good news is that a 2000 report published in the Journal of the American Medical Association of Dermatology has found correlations between your brew and better skin health.
Specifically, the study shows that Korean Green Tea protects against swelling, sun damage and even ageing.
But what can it do when it comes to fitting into your favourite pair of jeans again? While your expectations should be managed, there is a chance that Korean Green Tea can help.
