This first flush (earliest spring growth) whole leaf green tea was machine harvested around Ipha (the first day of the summer season), then steam heated, rolled and dried. 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) 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.
