This first flush (first machine harvest of the year) whole leaf oxidized hongcha black tea was machine harvested after Ipha (the beginning of the summer season) then wilted, tossed, rolled, oxidized and dry roasted. 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) hongcha (black 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.
