Ujeon, in Hanja, means “before rainfall”, indicating the time these leaves are harvested. They are the absolute first buds that shoot up with the start of spring. These delicate buds are hand-harvested and processed with years of experience.

Gamro, in Hanja, means “sweet dew”, indicating the taste and aroma of the tea. When steeped correctly, there is a delicate sweetness that is produced.

Jaksul Cha means “Sparrow’s Tongue”, indicating high-quality green tea in Korea.

Some categorize it to be a Sejak grade.
Others categorize it to be in a class of its own.
Harvested before Gokwoo* season in early spring, the first budding shoots of the year are meticulously hand-picked leaf by leaf to create this peerless tea. Steeps a bright, green liquor possessing a light sweet taste with delicate undertones of clean grassiness.

*Gokwoo is the rainfall for seeding (the 6th of the 24 seasonal divisions according to the lunar calendar that fall on the 20th or 21st of April).
