Korean Sejak is different in many ways, and difficult to get the taste you want. I’ve been working on it for years. And I finally got the taste that I like.
This is recommended for everyone. Whether you’re a straight green tea lover, a starter with straight teas or a masters in the art of tea, it’s a must have. You don’t drink it for the mildness of the tea. The point of Korean Sejak is to drink it for the cleanness of it. If the water is too cold, it gets too vegetal. If the water is too hot, then it gets too dry and you don’t taste the cleanness at all.
With careful experiments, you can get the best tea out of this. Using large tea pots (for steeping space) and washing the tea (waking it up with a small splash of hot water) first makes a huge difference.
I experimented around 80 degrees Celsius. With not much steeping time. When it’s perfected and acquired the art of Korean Sejak, then it’s worth it. Give it a try! This specific tea is what got me into tea steeping!
