New DPRK Stamps Issued
The DPRK issued new stamps (one sheet) showing its tea culture.

Seen in the tea leaf-shaped sheet are three stamps introducing Unjong tea (Kangnyong black and green teas) and Kaesong Koryo Insam (ginseng) tea against the pictures of the Kangnyong Unjong Tea-growing District and some contents of history book Samguksagi (Chronicles of the Three Kingdoms), which summarizes the tea plantation started from the period of the Three Kingdoms (early 3rd century B.C.—mid-7th century A.D.) in Korea.

The tea culture of Korea associated with the wisdom of ancestors has been brought into full bloom in the era of the Workers' Party of Korea to be conducive to promoting the health and emotional life of people.
