Nambanggain
Reflecting both the global nature of current tea production and local innovation, this semi-oxidized (oolong) tea is made from the small Korean leaves typically destined for competition-grade green tea, but instead processed using techniques typically associated with Taiwanese baihao oolong (a.k.a. dongfang meiren) production. The result is a tea similar in its basic profile to a fruit-sweet Taiwanese baihao, but with greater delicacy.

Woojeon Cheongcha 2010
Rich and expansive flavor, and very creamy compared to the Goryeo green teas from the same season. As is typical with this style of oolong, the character of the green leaves seems to be magnified by the oxidation process. Because of the delicacy of the leaves, this tea is best brewed with somewhat lower temperature water in the style of a green tea.

This tea is one grade up from the Woojeon Cheongcha, and is in the realm of "competition grade" teas. It is considerably milder than the Woojeon with a more expansive flavor. 70g quantities (two bags) are also packaged in a fancy paper box.
