Woojeon Goryeo 2020 thumbnail
Woojeon Goryeo 2020
The standard in high end Korean green teas, smooth and sweet across multiple infusions, and a notch more subtle than the saejak. A cold spring this year has produced a very aromatic tea, smooth as expected but a notch lighter overall than last year. Very limited availability.

Saejak Goryeo 2020
This tea is made in the same style as the woojeon and tukpoom grades, but is picked just a little later and therefore commands a lower price. Nonetheless, it is still hand-fired with the same care as the higher grades. Limited availability.

Tukpoom Goryeo 2017 thumbnail
Tukpoom Goryeo 2017
The 2017 batch is all about subtlety and sweetness. The vegetal notes limit themselves to the aroma in this tea, while the taste is light, creamy, and quite sweet. This is a green tea with a high level of polish, showcasing (in the words of the tea maker) the �full aroma and energy, which are expected from a high grade green tea made out of small tender leaves during the early spring.�

Joongjak Ssanggye 2017 thumbnail
Joongjak Ssanggye 2017
The 2017 batch has a particularly creamy quality to the rich flavor. Although the dry leaves exhibit a classic fresh, green aroma, the flavor of this batch is mellow and expansive with only hints of vegetal green-ness. Very satisfying and easy to sip.

Saejak Goryeo 2017 thumbnail
Saejak Goryeo 2017
The 2017 batch has an excellent aroma from the dry leaves, and a smooth flavor that transitions from vegetal to sweet. This one is very much in the style of the Woojeon from the same season, but provides a more straightforward taste experience.

Saejak Goryeo 2016 thumbnail
Saejak Goryeo 2016
This batch was processed with a light touch compared to the more-roasted 2015 saejak. The result is a rich, green tea with clear vegetal notes, very much the younger sibling of the 2016 woojeon. In contrast, the 2015 batch has a lighter overall flavor but a very sweet finish. The differences between the two reflect the drier-than-usual spring of 2015 and the adjustments in processing made to compensate.
