This Hadong Mt. Jiri First Flush Daejak green tea is harvested after Ipha, the beginning of the summer season, then steamed to prevent any oxidation, thereby maintaining the distinctive color and taste of the spring harvest.
Jaksul (sparrow's beak) refers to the shape of the iconic "bud and two leaves" found at the tip of spring growth on the camellia sinensus bush. The two spreading leaves resemble an open bird’s beak and the emerging bud looks like its tongue sticking out. Daejak means "large beak".
We have this same tea available in tea bag form here.
