Joonjak 'Sparrow's tongue'
Green tea, South Korea

Baby zucchini, hints of sage and thyme – sweet and savoury
‘Joonjak’ means ‘Sparrow’s tongue’, representing the delicately curled shape of the leaf, reminiscent of a sparrow’s tongue.  This tea has a pleasant aroma and flavour which is both sweet and savoury.  Play around with steeping time and temperature; if you are new to green tea, steep at 80° for one minute to create a lighter, more mellow tea. If you are a green tea lover, steep it in hotter water for longer. This brings out more fruity notes in the aroma, strengthens the flavour and body of the tea and gives it a little bite of astringency. 

Preparation: Steep for 1 - 3 minutes at 80° - 90°. Two + infusions.
