The most delicate of all tea, lightly processed and crafted entirely from tender spring buds, high in the remote mountains of Jirisan. Picked for only five days of the year, just as the buds unfurl to the first new leaves.
Our tea is classified as semi-wild as the tea plants have self seeded from the original tea plants grown 1200 years ago. They grow within the Jirisan National Park, amongst the bamboo forests and the pure water of the Sumjim River. Because of the steep hillsides the entire picking process is done by hand with meticulous care.
Picked in the early spring before the first rains over a five day period. Woojeon is the taste of spring, the early green tips of the year.
Of all the early tea leaf pickings of the season Woojeon gives you close to the taste and smoothness of the first pick of the seaon. We highly recoomend.
