Korea’s Green Tea Fields in Boseong

Green Tea Fields in Boseong, Korea

Not wanting to waste a good weekend, Jared and I decided to pack up and go see the famous Korean Green Tea Fields in Boseong. Our dear friends, the Groves, decided to come along too!

Driving from Geoje to Boseong

We left Saturday evening, we headed out for our adventure! It only took about 2.5 hours to get there, but by the time we found a nice spot to camp out (or, “hammock out”) on the beach, it was pretty dark. We snuggled into our tree beds and dozed off…

However, our beauty sleep was shorter lived than we anticipated. At 6am, we were rudely awakened to this… on a Sunday morning!

Not being able to sleep through the racket, we packed up and got an early start to our day.

We went to a little convince store and found us a gourmet breakfast.

After consuming enough sugar to last us for the rest of the week, we headed off to see the so-called amazing tea fields. Let me just say–we were not let down. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking!

The air smelt so fresh and sweet from all of the tea. It was surreal.

We even found a few tasty wild raspberries!

Jared decided to give the leaves a taste. After chewing for a few seconds, he said “I don’t know how anyone thought of making this into a drink!” Apparently they were pretty bitter, and “worse than grass.” (???)

We stopped in at the little store, and the lady was very sweet. Not only did she end up giving us a few boxes of tea, but she also made us complimentary green tea to sip on!

We came back later that day and bought some green tea ice cream from her. It was quite delicious and refreshing. Imagine sweet and creamy cold green tea…

We headed over to check out the museum, and stopped at a park to take a few pictures.

We finally made our way over to the museum, but unfortunately, cameras were not allowed.

The museum had a nice gift shop, and I made a few purchases, including a tea set!

I have been on the lookout for a tea set since our arrival in Korea. I consider this to be my prize souvenir from our time in South Korea.

Our other purchases included loose-leaf green tea, green tea skin care products, and green tea candy!

We had a blast last weekend. And we would definitely recommend that if you ever come to South Korea, you’ve got to put this on your list!

  1. I loved this post. I can’t believe that tractor was there at 6am Sunday. Wow. Jared’s expression was priceless. I bet Gma would love to see this. I don’t know if she gets it. She’s a green tea fan. The fields looked beautiful and made me want a cup of tea. Amber, I’m glad you found your tea set!
