Dew tea

Has anyone heard of dew tea? A co-worker went to Korea and brought back this tea which is the most curious thing I've ever tasted. It tastes a little like green tea at first but has a distinctive sweet finish. It was... uplifting. Ever so slightly tingly on the tongue with just a fleeting moment of sweetness that disappears as soon as you start to notice it. But it's definitely there and there is no sugar added. The first sip left me wondering if I really tasted what I tasted. Each subsequent sip confirmed it. I looked into it and found it on line (link below). This is even the same brand I had. Rather pricey but I'm thinking about getting some because it's really an oddity. I thought I was pretty knowledgeable about Korean food but I'd never even heard of this tea. Does anyone know more about this tea? Where the sweetness comes from, history, why it's so dang expensive...
