This county in the southern region of Korea, is actually known to be home to award-winning green tea plantations with nearly 40% of total production, for nearly 6 million plants in the region. Impressive! There are other green tea fields located off of the mainland on Jeju Island, however in my opinion, Boseong scores top marks!


The tea production in Boseong is linked to its favorable climate (winters less severe than in the north of the country), the richness of the soils, and the differences in temperature, and this was a selling point for me because I love the warmer weather. It was also magical for the hilly surroundings which contribute to the aroma of the tea!
