[Nong Hyup] Fermented Green Tea

What does Fermented Green Tea taste like?

Well, I'm sure most are familiar with the taste of regular green tea. It has a distinct, vegetal flavor with a slightly astringent after-taste. But if you allow the same green tea leaves to ferment, the oxidation process completely changes its flavor profile.

Fermented Green Tea has a slightly nutty taste - without any grassy flavors and none of the bitterness. Making it enjoyable for even non-tea drinkers. In fact, we have been drinking this on-and-off for the last 3 years. It's become one of our favorite teas.

Nong Hyup cultivates its tea leaves in Hwa Gae province, which is located at the base of Mt. Jirisan. This area is famous for having ideal climate conditions for growing tea leaves. In fact, this area produces more than 45% of Korea's entire green tea leaves.

If you're looking to develop a daily tea habit, this is a safe choice!

This is my new favorite tea. It doesn't have any bitter or grassy flavor. It's just a simple lovely green tea taste.

Definitely a difference

This tea is better than the green tea I usually buy and I would definitely purchase it again.


No bitter taste

Green tea usually has a bitter, grassy flavor to it regardless of how you brew it. I really enjoyed the flavor of this tea as it was reminiscent of green tea, but with none of the bitterness or grassy flavor. It won't be what you're looking for if you want something more like a Sencha green tea, but if you're also put off by grassy-tasting green tea then you will definitely enjoy this.

What does fermentation do?  

The fermentation process changes the smell and taste of the green tea leaves.  It produces a more mellow taste - reducing that astringency and grassy bitterness associated with regular green tea. The microbes also produce metabolites which boost health benefits.
