Tips for Tea Connoisseurs
Our Woojeon Spring Waltz Hadong is a really delicate and gentle spring green tea from Jiri Mountain, Hadong in South Korea, made from entirely hand-picked, hand-crafted, wild bush tea leaves naturally grown on the slope of Jiri Mountain, one of the most famous tea plantations in South Korea, together with other two well-known tea producing regions such as Hadong and Jeju Island.
In South Korea, there are three main tea producing regions - Boseong, Hadong and Jeju Island. While tea gardens located in Jeju Island mostly produce industrialised, mechanised green teas, small scale 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, 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 offers a rare opportunity to green tea connoisseurs to try real, authentic, entirely hand-made, first flush, 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 nutty sweetness.
When brewed, Woojeon Spring Waltz Hadong offers a wonderfully gentle, sweet, umami liquor filled with steamed vegetable, floral and light toasty notes, which evokes the flavour of fine Long Jing Dragon Well on one hand and gracious Bi Luo Chun on the other hand.
An authentic, rare Woojeon green tea from scenic Jiri Mountain that will bring gentle spring breeze to your tea moment. As a rich source of vitamin C, catechin and amino acid, Woojeon Spring Waltz will not only soothe your mind, but will also nourish your body.
