Teuksun Jaksul Cha (Sejak Grade)

Teuksun Jaksul Cha

Sejak grade green tea from Hankook Tea.

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

Hand-harvested right before and after Ibha*, it is difficult not to appreciate the complexity of this tea. Teuksun still has the delicate and sweet flavor remnants of the first flush harvest leaves, which are interwoven beautifully with more mature, robust tones. These spring leaves are skillfully steamed and slightly pan-fired into perfection.

*Ibha  is 7th of the 24 seasonal divisions, falling on the 5th or 6th of May, according to the lunar calendar.
