help finding a Korean Tea (O'Sulloc)

So I’ve fallen in love with a tea I got in a swap called Jeju Sweet Brown. I’ve poked around on their site, but not knowing Korean is holding me back. There are several labeled Jeju Sweet Brown like this one http://www.osullocmall.com/productView.do?seq=1381 but I’m not sure if there is a difference among them.

Anyway, I would love to know where I can get ahold of some, or if I could pay a Korean Steepsterite to send me some. Anyone?

Oooh, I wanna try some! From looking around O’sulloc is korea’s largest tea producer too! They got quite a bit of tea and a number of blends.

I go to Korean markets often in the LA area, if I see it I’ll snag some. I’m learning Korean, but I’m still quite a beginner.

that would be awesome!

Hi everyone. I also discovered osulloc’s Sejak tea while on Jeju island. I’m desperate to get hold of some here in Spain, but the only way seems to be via their website. As you so kindly pointed out, the main page is available in English, but their “mall” page is only in Korean. I wrote to the email address (in English) a week ago, and no reply. Baffling really. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be gratefully received. Thanks. Mike in Barcelona

Looks like they have three different packaging – regular, christmas, and valentine’s day editions. But they are all same. A square box one has 10 pyramid sachets, and the one you linked has 40g of loose leaves. If you want to checked all of them out, copy, paste, and search 제주 스위트 브라운 :)

Stella – did I just swap with you? :)

I actually just toured Ossulac on Jeju Island a couple days ago. Ran into this thread accidentally trying to buy more of a specific tea and signed up to answer. Anyway…

Ordering stuff online in Korea can be a bear. There are a million different security methods. I’d recommend doing what Stella recommended. Search the official website to find what you want, in this case…= “제주 스위트 브라운”. Then search for that at Gmarket (think eBay, Korean-style). Not only does it have an English section, it’s a lot more user-friendly than the O’Sulloc website. I’ve done that for you here:

Good luck!

Thanks Galgor and Tea Pet. I finally managed to order some (on ebay). Only had to wait 2 1/2 years for the chance!

@Galgor, thanks for the link. Unfortunately these people don’t ship outside of Korea, so that was a no-go.
