drank Sejak by O5 Tea
820 tasting notes

During my recent visit of Vancouver, I checked out the O5 tea house. They have a very interesting bar like setup. It is pretty cool, although I guess personally, I would prefer to be able to prepare the tea myself. I also grabbed a few samples of the teas they source, in particular two Korean ones and two FF Darjeelings.

This Sejak can be characterized as having a light aroma, but strong flavour. The smell is medicinal/herbal with notes of green peas and gardenia flowers. I found the taste to be similar to Anji Bai Cha, but more robust with some bitterness, floral and creamy qualities. Unfortunately, the texture is not very noteworthy. However, the tea has an impressive longetivity for a green tea.

Flavors: Bitter, Creamy, Floral, Flowers, Garden Peas, Gardenias, Herbaceous, Medicinal

I had been drinking Japanese green tea for a while before discovering the world of tea in 2017. I rarely drink blends and generally avoid artificially scented teas. Other than that I try to keep it varied.
