boseong green tea plantations, korea

green tea fields, Boseong, tea planation

Boseong is famous for its green tea and currently produces about 40% of Korea’s green tea; the tea fields in this area cover several hundred kilometers and are really spectacular with their winding tea hedges.

Within this Boseong area, the largest and most famous plantation is the Daehan Green Tea Plantation. Although this tea plantation has been around for a long time, it was purchased in the 1950’s by a group of Korean entrepreneurs and they have really developed it as a major tea tourism destination.

More information on tea tours to the Boseong area can be found a the Visit Korea website. Photos via Matt Kelley
