Sejak is a traditional Korean green tea that is picked during the spring season. It is the second tea picked in the Korean tea calendar, after Woojun which is harvested in late March and early April. Whereas Woojun has a light body and delicate flowery aroma, Sejak has a little more energy and structure with a balance of toasted chestnut and subtly fruity aroma.
