Korea Woojeon ~ Arbor Teas

In aroma, flavor and texture this rare Korean Green is all but indistinguishable from any Anhui or Fujian Green. Where it does vary is interestingly in its loose leaf makeup. Check this out:

Okay so the image may or may not actually mean anything to you, but take my word for it: Korea Woojeon is a cute curlycue of happiness.

I do think Korea Woojeon highly drinkable and well refined, but in manufacture (organic, so that likely has a lot to do with it) the end result is fairly unremarkable. In fact i had some with my breakfast and it worked quite well as i like to have an astringent Green for breakfast most days. In aroma Korea Woojeon is vegetal and astringent. In flavor it’s  bitter with bright grassy notes. In texture it’s gooey, a thicker, filmier Green with a low-medium tea grit. Korea Woojeon makes for a drinkable Green, but oddly, despite having been produced in Korea, it may as well be a Chinese Green clone.

I’m not exactly disappointed, but i guess i had my expectations up considering Korea Woojeon’s rarity.
