Tea Review: Jeju Island First Flush (Whatcom Tea)

Jeju Island First Flush
Whatcom Tea
Type: Green
Origin: South Korea, Jeju Island
Product Description: Not provided.

Temperature: 160-175° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 1 minute

The dry leaf aroma has vegetal, nutty, and mineral notes.  

The light yellow infusion has an aroma of steamed green vegetables and nuts.  The taste is vegetal, green, and nutty.  

The flavor and aroma remained surprisingly similar whether the tea is was brewed for 1 or 2 minutes and whether the water temperature was 160° F or 175° F.  The best results for my preferences came with a lighter 1 minute infusion using 160° F water.

This tea was purchased by me.
