Added to the Unesco World Heritage List for its geological characteristics and its exceptional natural environment, the volcanic island of Jeju offers the best possible conditions for the production of green tea, with a suitable climate, average rain level, and a rich and fertile soil. Located in the South of the peninsula, the beautiful island is also renowned for its wild landscapes, dominated by Mount Halla, the highest mountain in South Korea. Korean tea producers have been prompt to elect this volcanic land, very suitable for organic agriculture. This is why, nowadays, 23% of the total harvest of Korean tea leaves come from Jeju.
We offer you an organic green tea of the Woojeon grade, corresponding to the very first harvests of April. This tea is therefore a "first-flush" green tea, quite soft and refreshing. The sun and the Southern volcanic lands give it a unique flavour, which allowed it to become Korea's most popular tea.
Tea and health
Recent books and studies seem to prove that green tea plays an essential role, not only in preventing, but also in treating cardiovascular dusease and some types of cancer. In his books, David Servan-Schreiber has stressed the presence in green tea of a catechin, the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This powerful antioxidant is capable of neutralizing the reactive oxygen species and the free radicals heavily involved in aging and in chronic degenerative diseases. Researches have shown that the EGCG may have beneficial effects against numerous illnesses, like atherosclerosis, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases or overweight. In Chinese traditional medicine, it is recommended for intellectual work, to reduce fatigue by stimulating the nervous system, to lower body temperature, enhance eyesight, reinforce the immune system, help digestion... It is important to underline that the green tea that is evoked here is of good quality and, of course, straight, plain green tea!
