Pure Korean green tea with a fresh and nutty note
roasted sesame, algae, bamboo

Hadong, South Korea

No. Infusions 5
Amount (tsp. / ml) 1 ½ / 250
Temperature 70-80 °C

Why choose when you can have both? This Korean green combines Chinese pan frying with Japanese steaming to halt the leaves’ oxidation. The result is an intriguing mix of baked aromas and vegetal notes rounded off by the robust roastiness typical of Korean teas.

Toasted sesame, salty notes but there’s also sweetness. After the initial nuttiness the vegetal notes unfold, but more tangy sorrel rather than cut grass and spinach. Not much bitterness or astringency. Lovely green tea.

Bought this tea on a trip to Berlin. The seller recommended the Saejak. Lucky me, we got to compare them before buying, really like the service of this shop! The Saejak felt cleaner, especially when comparing the leaves post-brewing. However i coulnd´t justify the Saejak having twice the price. The difference in the aroma (pre-brewing) and the taste of the brew wasnt that convincing.
I should add that since we live in Norway it was quite a difference tasting the tea in Berlin compared to brewing it up in my hometown of Bergen. Got a lot less of the musky odor post-brewing and a more intense brew in itself. Yay for Norwegian water!

Onto the Daejak (Maia´s pick), it quickly became one of my favourites. An oily texture, initial notes of toasted sesamy, a bit of peanut butter and a woody note. Then more of the vegetal notes reminicent of japanese tea.
Would definitely recommend this one if you like the toastiness of chinese green tea, but like the balance of japanese tea.
