What do you call the zest of an orange when you zest it in strips - but not wide strips, just thin strings.... (not grated)?

I have a tool that cuts thin strips of zest it has multiple holes on the end, its just called a zester to my knowledge. I think there are just different ways of zesting

Thanks! I'm writing a recipe and I have a tool that makes the little strips, which would measure out differently than grated - so I just wanted to be clear. Sounds like slivers is the way to go.
