For green tea connoisseurs, we bring you Jeoncha. Similar to Japanese Sencha in its taste and in its production method. This organic Korean green tea is grown on the tiny island of Jeju off the southern coast of mainland, South Korea. The nutrient-rich volcanic soil of the terroir creates the perfect conditions to cultivate this special organic tea, which is only harvested for only 10 days in the springtime. Korean Jeoncha features no bitterness and is sure to impress green tea lovers with its blend of sweet notes, and delicious umami-savouriness.
