Sejak Tendresse Loose Green Tea

Tips for Tea Connoisseurs

Sejak Tendresse is a gentle spring green tea from South Korea, made from wild bush tea leaves naturally grown on the slopes of Jiri Mountain, Hadong. 

In South Korea, there are three main tea producing regions - Boseong, Hadong and Jeju Island. While tea gardens located in Jeju Island mostly produce industrialised, mechanised green teas, small scale tea gardens around Hadong area continue to produce top quality, traditional, hand-made green and black teas from wild tea bushes naturally grown in the region. While you may often encounter Korean green teas from Jeju Island abroad, top quality, authentic, wild bush Sejak green tea from Hadong is not easily available in the markets outside South Korea due to limited production. Our Sejak Tendresse offers a rare opportunity to green tea connoisseurs to try real, authentic, entirely hand-made Sejak green tea from South Korea.

Korean green tea is graded according to the date of harvest and the maturity of buds and leaves: Woojeon/Ujeon (First Pluck), Sejak (Second Pluck), Joongjak/Jungjak (Third Pluck) and Daejak (Fourth Pluck). Each grade comes up with their unique flavour and Sejak green tea, traditionally made from one tender bud and two newly opened leaves of late April, is known for its delicate, subtle nutty sweetness. Although Sejak green tea is the next best grade of Korean green teas, many tea connoisseurs in South Korea often prefer Sejak to Woojeon, as the flavour of Woojeon is highly delicate and the aftertaste is often short on the palate. 

When brewed, Sejak Tendresse offers a wonderfully gentle and harmonious liquor filled with delicate toasted, nutty sweetness and a subtle floral, vegetal hint, which evokes the flavour of fine Long Jing Dragon Well on one hand and gracious Bi Luo Chun on the other hand. 

A rare, authentic, hand-made Sejak green tea from Hadong that will bring a gentle spring breeze from the beautiful Jiri Mountain to your tea moment. As a rich source of vitamin C, catechin and amino acid, Sejak Tendresse will not only soothe your mind, but will also nourish your body. 

Certified MAFRA Organic, which is equivalent to EU organic standards. 

Several studies indicate potential health benefits of green tea such as promoting skin health, weight loss, heart health and cancer prevention.
