Month and Year of Picking
A fresh and uplifting green tea with delicious fruity notes.
Korean Woojeon is rarely available outside of South Korea due to its high status in the Korean market and the high price it commands. Woojeon is made from the most delicate first flush tea leaves springing up after a whole winter of hibernation, which explains its delicate and nuanced character.
Our tea was entirely handmade, ie picked by hand and hand-handled throughout the production process. It comes from the wild growing tea plants on the slopes of picturesque Jiri Mountains. Roasted by Yun Seok Cho, a third generation tea master from Jukro Tea Company.
