For centuries Koreans and ‘people in the know’ have been using this tea to helps fight colds, relieve fatigue and even as a cure for the dreaded hangover.
Yuja first came to Korea in the age of Shilla Dynasty in the second year of king 문무 (Munmu). A person named 장보고 (Jangbogo) was carrying Yuja from China to Korea, then a sudden storm hit the boat when he was about to arrive at the Southern coast of Korea. That shock crushed Yuja and the seeds went into the bottom of the man’s coat. All the way he went through wearing his coat in Southern part of Korea the Yuja tree became prevalent later. Regardless if the story is true or
not, the tea is delicious.
