Wooree Tea’s First Harvest Tea comes from the Hadong region of south west South Korea. Hadong is recognised as the birthplace and the best tea growing region of South Korea.
Wooree Tea’s 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.
This is one of Wooree Tea’s most luxurious of teas. If you are looking for a refined, silky and subtle tasting tea with none of the bitterness usually associated with green tea, then this is for you.
Hwahwo tea is the second pick of the season April 12 & 13th 2017, hence the tea leaves are young and most tender. This is a tea for the those with a desire to drink the best.
The tea farm is certified by USDA and the EU as 100% organic.
All prices are in New Zealand dollars (NZD).
