Boseong - Tea

Stupid Tourist Saturday!

After the jjimjilbang we breakfasted at a Korean restaurant. We knew it would be a good meal because there was a sign out front in English proclaiming "Good Restaurant".
We made our way by bus up the hills that surround Boseong to a tea plantation. It was beautifully manicured row after row of tea bushes.
When the wind blew just right, the sent of tea wafted up the hill. It was a beautiful morning.
Of course, green tea has numerous health benefits. The growing process is quite interesting which includes harvesting from April to May. The leaves are steamed to stop oxidation and then rolled, dried and sifted.Though we were too early but coming up in May is the Boseong Tea Festival. Check it out if you are looking for a good weekend adventure.
