First Sparrow - Green Tea

 

 

Introducing this elegant green tea, which is a second flush made with three-pronged tea leaves (a bud and three leaves).

These fragrant leaves are picked at the peak of spring. When brewed, they reveal a viscous body, a full umami flavour, and a subtle sweetness to finish.

Available in 30g paper pouch or 50g metal tin, this tea will be the companion of your afternoon break, when you need to pause and regroup.

 

 

Brewing instructions

About be-oom

be-oom is a tea brand that offers naturally sourced tea from small farms in Korea.

be-oom /bi:-u:m/ means ‘to empty’ in Korean – the objective is to help find a place within the mind to empty and fill, all while emptying a cup of tea.

Soo Ji opened her Korean tea shop in Exmouth Market last year and I immediately loved the ethos and philosophy behind her brand. Showcasing only the finest Korean teas, tea sets and ceramics, her tea shop is an haven of peace in London. I’m very excited to be able to share her expertise of Korean tea with you. I hope you’ll enjoy our first selection for this Spring season.
