Edgar’s Seowang Sejak a true Korean gem.
This organic green tea, Edgar’s Seowang Sejak, is produced at the Seogwang Tea Farm was founded in 1984. It currently employs 50 workers and is located at an altitude of 156 meters above sea level in Seogwipo-si (City), Jeju Island (Province), South Korea. The island is a volcanic island surrounded by a beautiful sea, endowed with fresh air, clean water and fertile soil. Jeju Island’s environmental conditions such as average temperature, minimum temperature and annual precipitation are ideal for growing Green Tea, making the island one of Korea’s Top 3 areas for tea harvest. Seogwang Tea Farm uses Yabukita, Geumgokrok, and Hyeopsanhyang tea cultivars and produces EU and NOP Organic certified tea.
Sejak specifically is handpicked in the latter part of April. The tea grows in natural shading on volcanic soil with optimized rainfall, from which it receives its unique flavor. All teas are controlled by professional researchers who check the content of tea everyday and decide the fertilizing and harvest time.
Korean Green Tea has the advantage that it is both steamed and roasted during production process. The steaming process gives the tea a fresh taste, while the roasting process gives it a slightly nutty taste. Furthermore the roasting process increases the amount of amino acids, giving the tea a hint of sweetness. Korean Green Tea’s unique taste comes mostly from its special production process. This is a tea that will never ever bore you. You will want to drink it again and again and again…. and again… a true gem!
