Maesil (Green Plum) Tea

Maesil is the fruit of the plum tree. Green plum (Maesil in Korean) produced from late May through June in Korea is mixed with sugar in a one to one ratio, stored in a cool place for several months, and then strained for a sweet and sour fermented Maesil syrup with a sweet aroma. This syrup can be diluted with water to one fifth (1/5) its strength to make a Maesil drink. If diluted with hot water, it becomes ‘Maesil tea’
