Picture of Korean Sejak

Korean Sejak from DAVIDsTEA

Style: Sejak – Region: Jeju, South Korea

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
May. 12th, 2016

I thought this was a good everday tea, especially if you want a stronger green tea that isn't too harsh, but I wasn't crazy about it for the high price that it had. I've had only one other Sejak (although I've had other types of Korean green teas, all of which I liked better) and it was pretty similar.

I initially ...

South Korea Seogwang from TeaGschwendner

Style: Green Tea – Region: Jeju, South Korea

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 29th, 2014

Purchased in the TeaGschwendner store in Regensburg, Germany. The company describes this tea as intense and reminiscent of Japanese green teas, and I agree on both counts.

The dry leaf is aromatic but in a sort of edgy way that I'm not sure if I like. It's fresh and suggests a cooling quality, but is a bit harsh, ...

Korea Woojeon Green Tea from Arbor Teas

Style: Green Tea – Region: Jeju, South Korea

83 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jul. 16th, 2014

This tea is a notch up from the Sejak sold by Arbor Teas, and I think it lives up to these claims--it's only a little bit pricier, but I think it's much more flavorful, aromatic, and pleasing to drink. Thank you again to Dewey for this sample!

The dry leaf of this smells deep, dark, fruity, and herbaceous, reminisc...

Korea Sejak Green Tea from Arbor Teas

Style: Sejak – Region: Jeju, South Korea

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Apr. 2nd, 2014

Thank you Dewey for this sample!

Dry leaf doesn't have much smell, but the minute the water hits the leaves there is an explosion of aroma that reminds me of very good Japanese sencha.

But once the tea has steeped it has a very different aroma, more like a Chinese green tea, very grassy, and with some toasty and ...

Picture of Ha Dong Bohea Green Tea

Ha Dong Bohea Green Tea from Republic of Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: Hadong, South Korea

92 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 12th, 2013

I thought this tea to be delightful and very different. It was not really at all like a typical green tea...much more like a green Taiwanese oolong, and in some ways almost suggestive of some aged Pu-erh.

Dry leaf has a most peculiar aroma: highly vegetal and slightly nutty, perhaps fruity too.

Upon brewing, the...

Picture of Woo-jeon Korean Green Tea

Woo-jeon Korean Green Tea from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Green Tea – Region: South Korea

77 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 2/5
Dec. 26th, 2011

This tea struck me as having a very typical green tea profile, but being very good, and in an intense sort of way. It is intense more than it is strong.

The dry leaf is wiry, very dark green, and consisting of small leaves. Its aroma is strong and suggests a savory quality. The dry leaf smells rather strongly, a ...

Dae-Jak Korean Green Tea from Upton Tea Imports

Style: Green Tea – Region: South Korea

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Dec. 1st, 2011

This is the first Korean-grown tea I've ever sampled, and I liked it a lot. It is a broken-leaf tea with a rather uninteresting-looking dry leaf that becomes pleasantly delicate-looking after it is brewed.

I found this tea hard to describe. It brews a clear greenish cup with small flecks of tea leaf. The aroma is...
