Boseong county is located about two and a half hours west of Geoje Island. I’m surprised it’s taken Derik and I a year to go visit. It’s all thanks to Amber for encouraging us to go with her and her husband!
Boseong is known nationwide for it’s green tea plantations. I have never seen so many fields of green in my entire life! The tea is famous for it’s high quality, and is even recognized as a drink suitable for an astronaut’s diet (if that’s the sort of thing that will impress you.)
We decided to go up a night early and camp, waking up to the smell of the fresh green tea leaves. Unfortunately our camping plans didn’t go quite the way we expected, and we were rudely awakened at 5:30 am by a backhoe spreading sand all over our campground. More on that story and other random happenings while we’ve been in Korea here.
After eating cereal we bought at a local convenience store, we headed out to go find the tea fields. We didn’t have to search very hard, and it wasn’t long until we stumbled upon the signature rolling hills of green. As we peered inside a little merchandise store we were greeted by a wonderful little lady who gave us free green tea. How about that for a great morning?
And then it was off to see the scenery. Enjoy the pictures!
