ORGANIC KOREAN WOOJEON GREEN TEA
“Woojeon” literally means ‘before the rains’. It is the earliest hand-picked, organic green tea, harvested before April 20th which is an agricultural point on the Korean Calendar known as ‘Gokujeol’ or ‘Gogu’. These calendar terms reflect the agricultural seasons.
This tea is renowned as being one of the top Korean Green Teas. The type of tea, harvested early on in the season, is collectively known as ’Sparrow’s tongue’ for its rarity and appearance. Woojeon, however, is the first flush.
We source this tea from South West Korea, in South Gyeongsang Province. It is grown on an Organically certified tea farm. It has US and EU Organic status. The tea farm is devoted to organic tea husbandry and classical methods of Korean tea farming and production. This is Organic Green Tea at its finest.
Only small quantities are produced each year, it is very labour intensive.
This tea may be enjoyed on many different levels. We would recommend up to three steepings.
These rare tiny leaves are the paragon of quality with an unsurpassed vibrant, yet mellow delicacy.
