This second flush (second machine harvest of the year) whole leaf lightly oxidized hwang cha black tea was machine harvested before Haji (the summer solstice) then wilted, rolled, lightly oxidized and dry roasted. Selecting only the bud and two leaves from the harvested material, this USDA certified organic tea is similar in quality to handpicked sejak (small beak) jaksul (sparrow’s beak) hwang cha (black tea). Added to the processed black tea are dried organic Jeju Island mandarin orange skins, harvested the prior December. This single estate tea comes from the fertile volcanic soil of the cool eastern slope of Mt. Halla on Jeju Island, located off Korea’s southern coast.
