If I have to be honest, taste is a truly subjective matter and there are one too many Korean trends to keep track of, not to mention many more in the making to discover. But this week, allow me to share some of the items (off the top of my head) that will still be in my shopping list come the bright New Year!

I would have given attention about ‘THE’ green tea milk spread again but I reckon it’s about time I left my comfort green tea zone to explore some other great spreads around — and this marron (chestnut) jam is just the spread you ought to get acquainted with. In Season is an independent brand that produces artisanal jams and sauces that are made fresh and impeccably well-packaged.

Osulloc is one of the biggest green tea producing companies in South Korea. One thing great about this brand is that they have an intensive list of tea flavours to choose from and this sampler set of 4 sachets would be ideal if you are new to their teas. Their packaging is top notch and a lot of people bring their teas home as souvenirs or home warming gifts for a fellow tea lover.

The honey butter trend has turned into a staple flavour here in South Korea, to no surprise! This flavour would appeal to all garlic lovers out there — yes, it is honey garlic almond you’re looking at. A hint of garlic aroma in every almond bite would make you a garlic/almond addict in no time!
