Sourcing Notes
Sejak is a second flush Korean tea picked in early May. While this term is typically used for green teas, increasingly often Korean tea producers diversify into black teas. Due to the pale colour of the liquor Korean black teas are sometimes referred to as yellow teas, but we have been informed by the producer that this tea was fully oxidised. 

Our tea was entirely handmade, ie picked by hand and hand-handled throughout the production process. It comes from the wild growing tea plants on the slopes of picturesque Jiri Mountains. Roasted by Yun Seok Cho, a third generation tea master from Jukro Tea Company.
