Tips for Tea Connoisseurs

Our Woojeon Spring Waltz Hadong Ackyang Village is a really delicate and gentle, very first flush, spring green tea from Ackyang village, Jiri Mountain, Hadong in South Korea. Made from entirely hand-picked, hand-crafted, wild bush tea leaves naturally grown between the rocks on the slope of Jiri Mountain, one of the most famous tea plantations in South Korea, Woojeon Spring Waltz Hadong Ackyang Village offers a wonderfully gentle, delicate, sweet, creamy, floral and vegetal liquor filled with very lightly toasty flavour and subtle citrus fruity note, which evokes the flavour of top quality, finest Long Jing Dragon Well green tea and floral, fruity Bi Luo Chun. 

 Please note that our Korean teas from Hadong region are made from naturally grown wild tea bushes which yield a delicious, long, sustained, very fine, fruity finish that you also find in some oolongs and puerh sheng teas made from ancient Gushu tea trees. With Wild Arbor Joongjak, you will notice a slight hint of citrusy-fruity note in the finish, which leaves a refreshing sensation on the palate. 

In South Korea, there are three main tea producing regions - Boseong, Hadong and Jeju Island. While tea gardens located in Boseong and Jeju Island mostly produce industrialised, mechanised green teas, small scale, family-run, tea gardens around Hadong area continue to produce top quality, traditional, hand-made green and black teas from wild tea bushes naturally grown in the region. While you may often encounter Korean green teas from Jeju Island abroad, top quality, authentic, entirely hand-picked, hand-made, wild bush Woojeon green tea from Hadong is not easily available in the markets outside South Korea due to limited production. Our Woojeon Spring Waltz Ackyang Village offers a rare opportunity to green tea connoisseurs to try real, authentic, entirely hand-made, first flush, top quality Woojeon green tea from South Korea.

Korean green tea is graded according to the date of harvest and the maturity of buds and leaves: Woojeon/Ujeon (First Pluck), Sejak (Second Pluck), Joongjak/Jungjak (Third Pluck) and Daejak (Fourth Pluck). Each grade comes up with their unique flavour and Woojeon, literally meaning, "Before Rain", is only made from one tender bud and two newly opened hand-picked leaves of mid April and highly praised for its delicate, subtle floral, vegetal notes and nutty sweetness. 

An authentic, rare, finest Woojeon green tea from scenic Jiri Mountain that will bring gentle yet refreshing, mountain spring breeze to your green tea ritual. As a rich source of vitamin C, catechin and amino acid, Woojeon Spring Waltz Ackyang Village will not only soothe your mind, but will also nourish your body.
