So good to see some links to alternative sources of Balhyocha. I love to support the Morning Crane offerings--and FYI, here's the plan for 2023
Note: Our TeaBuy Korea 2023 will begin on Korean New Year's Sunday January 22, 2023. It will be first announced on our Morning Earth Korea Facebook page.
--but I have worried about that fragile single link to these teas in case the individuals involved decide not to keep going with it. Good to know it is becoming more widely available. Even in the markets in Koreatown here in LA I have seen almost exclusively green teas, not the balhyochas that I really love.

That's very close to my birthday- I will remember for sure to buy myself a little present at that time!

A few years ago I brought some Woojeon from the above vendor to a tea party at Victoria's house, everyone seemed to really like the quality.

They do have quite a few different Korean teas. Looks very interesting. Always glad to see another source for Teas that I enjoy so much.

There are couple teas available at O-five rare tea bar.

Ah, these descriptions full of cocoa references are really hard to resist.

The owner of the shop is also the owner of what used to be called "29B Teashop" in NYC, which rebranded to this during the pandemic though they still have a physical location there too.
