drank Korean Sejak by DAVIDsTEA
52 tasting notes

So I bought a small $1 pack of this today because I always have an affinity for green teas and I’ve been meaning to try a Korean green for a while! This most definitely did not disappoint. The package actually contained twice the amount of tea that I usually use for a single serving, so I still have some extra to have later, but I definitely think I will be searching out more for purchase.

I’ve always been experimenting with steeping times when I brew green tea, and brewed this with a more mild temperature than my usual method for greens, and the results were fantastic. Sweet and mildly salty, with pleasant green after taste. The leaves, as others have noted, come in drastically different shapes and sizes, but I don’t know if that’s typical of Korean greens. Either way, I very much enjoyed this, and… don’t have much else to say! But will definitely be enjoying in the future.

I’m curious, they didn’t brew it for you in store? Just gave you enough to steep, in a teabag? Or package?

IIRC, at least at my location, they had Korean Sejak, Ginseng Oolong, Tung Ting Vietnam, White Peony, and 2nd Flush Darjeeling. I wish they had the others. They’re like the little sample packs you get in online orders, although they have the right # of grams printed on the bag. Enough for a couple cups, I think. Great deal IMO!

Oh my, I sweare I replied to this, or maybe Steepster glitched and lost my comment? Either way, yes, what Kittenna said! I’ve been very pleased with the samples I’ve tried so I think it’s both a really great deal and a good way to get acquainted with new tea. Even more so than the in-store $1 deal, since you can brew the tea how you want, rather than rely on the staff at David’s.

That’s the strangest thing! You totally had replied (I read it!), and I was just adding a bit to what you said (namely, specifying the teas in tiny packets, and the sort of packets they were).

Bio

Canadian tea addict! Also a fandom nerd and perpetual student. My favourites are greens (genmaicha and a good jasmine), pu’erh (any kind—I love pu’erh), lapsang souchong, yerba mate, and guayusa. I almost seem to be one of the lone Pukka fans of Steepster, but I’m all right with that.

It’s been about two years since I’ve done anything on Steepster, but we’ll see if I find myself moved to post anything here on out. Till then, whenever that may be!
