Woojeon 'Before rain'  
Organic green tea, South Korea

Butternut pumpkin, green vegetables, floral finish 
Woojeon is one of the most famed teas of South Korea. The leaves for Woojeon are plucked from the tea bush before the tropical monsoon season begins each June. They are then steamed and then roasted (combining both Japanese and Chinese techniques). A full-bodied and fulfilling green tea, Woojeon has smooth, concentrated vegetal flavours followed by a floral finish.  

Preparation: Steep for 1 - 2 minutes at 80°. Two infusions. 

Food pairing: Roasted cauliflower and nut salad, Cauliflower and leek soup, warm rice and vegetable dishes.
