Tips for Tea Connoisseurs

Woojeon Spring Waltz is a really delicate and gentle spring green tea from South Korea, made from wild bush tea leaves naturally grown in beautiful Boseong, 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.

Unlike tea fields in Jeju Island, which were developed in the 1970s, Boseong has been a traditional, green tea producing region in the past in Korea, together with Hadong. There are historical records from Joseon dynasty (1392 - 1910) showing which towns and provinces were subjected to tea taxation and tea offerings to the government. During the Japanese colonial period (1910 - 1945), Japanese colonisers saw a potential to develop Boseong tea field to grow more tea for export, which consequently influenced the green tea production method and the cultivars currently grown in Boseong tea plantations. 

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 offers a wonderfully gentle, sweet, umami liquor filled with steamed vegetable and light toasty notes. There is a magically refreshing finish - a hint of subtle floral and light pine tree, which makes this rare green tea stand out.  

An authentic, rare Woojeon green tea from scenic Boseong 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.
