New Love : Bokbunja

My latest love.

Korean Berry Wine.
Discovered it last weekend during my maiden visit to DAORAE.

Introduction to Bokbunja:

  • A long time ago, an old man went into the mountain to get some wood.
  • He found some fruits which looked so delicious and ate them.
  • After that, he had an increased libido and active bladder.

Some interesting titbits: 

  • Bokbunja is an alcohol made from strawberries, and the fallen leaves of the Hwalyup tree.
  • From June to September, Korean women will go into the mountains to pick these leaves and fruits.
  • It should be kept in a sealed vessel and must not let the air in.
  • After 2 or 3 years,  the drink is considered at  its best matured taste.
  • It is said to be good for sexual potency.
  • During the making of Bokbunja, men couldn’t get in there. Only women could get in and work.
  • It’s also called stamina alcohol.
  • Ingredients: Citric Acid, Apples, Sugar, Fibrous Maerial, Ash, Vitamins.
  • Medicinal Effects:
    – Bokbunja can be used to help men who have impotency, premature ejaculation, urinary problems and hyperactivity.
    – Woman may also use it to combat impotency, to help promote healthy skin, vision and to maintain a healthy liver.

When the news of my latest love reached the ears and knowledge of a certain someone, he promised a bottle all the way from Seoul.

In another 2 weeks, I will get to taste some really authentic stuff.
Can’t wait!
