Tea Review: Boseong Sejak Hwang Cha (Teas Unique)

Boseong Sejak Hwang Cha 2nd Flush 
Teas Unique
Type: Yellow
Origin: South Korea, Boseong
Product Description: This Boseong Sejak (Second Pluck) Hwang Cha is hand harvested around 20 April. The tender young leaves are then lightly oxidized and roasted for a rich and smooth taste.

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of wheat, oats, flowers, and wood.

The orange-amber infusion has a sweet and lightly savory aroma of persimmons, honey, oats, and vine.  The taste has notes of baked fruit, snow peas, rice, and a hint of honey.

There was no notable astringency throughout three infusions.  The color became redder with a second infusion with no notable change in flavor.  The third infusion was significantly lighter in flavor, though not flat, so a longer steeping time may would likely produce more flavor.

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
