Woojeon Green Tea

Shutterstock

Woojeon is the "first flush" of green tea picked in South Korea, meaning that it is the earliest picked in the season. The leaves are therefore tender, delicate, and rarer than later-picked leaves. Remember to pay attention to both the temperature and the timing — if the tea steeps for too long, the flavor will turn bitter.

Ingredients

  • 1 heaped teaspoon woojeon tea
  • 1/2 - 2/3 Cup water

Directions

Steep the tea at 175 degrees for 1 minute for the first brew, 30 seconds for the second brew, and 1 more minute for the third brew.
