Organic Woojeon “Before Rain” Green Tea
Meaning ‘before rain’, organic Woojeon tea hails from Jeju Island, the Hawaii of South Korea. In this pristine wilderness of waterfalls and lava tube caves, legendary female free divers known as haenyeo (sea women) harvest shellfish from the sea, and tea gardens flourish in a volcanic landscape. The wiry leaves are naturally infused with the flavours of mineral-rich soils and salty sea breezes. Complex characters develop in Winter hibernation, then the first flush is hand-picked in the days before monsoon season, quickly steamed and pan roasted.
This smooth drinking tea from rugged origins is an ideal complement for shellfish, sashimi, seafood and soft cheeses. A sharp nose and luminous, yellow-jade liquor with botanical flavours that linger on the tongue.
Rich in antioxidants, energising and reduces inflammation.
Premium quality organic Woojeon green leaf tea.
