This Mt. Jiri Sejak green tea is hand harvested around Ipha (the beginning of the summer season). The tender young leaves are then pan fired in the traditional manner to prevent any oxidation, thereby maintaining the distinctive color and taste of the late 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. Sejak means "small beak".
