This first flush (earliest spring growth) whole leaf green tea was machine harvested mid-April, then sorted, wilted, steamed, rolled and dried. Selecting only the bud and two leaves from the harvested material, this USDA certified organic tea is Sejak grade, similar in quality to hand-plucked Jaksul (sparrow’s beak) Nokcha (green tea). 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.

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. Sejak means "small beak".
