This first flush (earliest spring growth) whole leaf green tea was machine harvested around Soman (the "full grain" season of late spring), 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 (small beak) 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.
