Ooh yeah, my first Korean tea, one more milestone in the world of tea achieved. Ordered from the local Chinese tea shop (It was cheap).
Looks quite much like Jiaogulan (which is chinese herb), and smells too. Wet leaves smell like a mix of chinese and japanese green teas with hint of herbs. They are dark green coloured like Japanese ones, some full leaves and some leaf pieces. I used gaiwan and 20s-30s-40s-etc steepings insted 5s steepings like suggested in the package.
It also tastes much like Jiaogulan, sweet herby taste with nuts and seaweed.

Flavors: Herbs, Nuts, Seaweed
