Boseong Green Tea Fields in South Korea

by - February 03, 2021

Hey, lovelies! Have you heard about the Green Tea plantation in Jeollanam-do? It has always been on my list of must-see places in Korea and finally, my husband and I advantage of the unusually beautiful weather and decided to make a day trip to Boseong Green Tea Plantation (보성녹차밭). I know not everyone likes green tea but I’m pretty sure whether you like or not, you’re gonna fall in love for this place!

Boseong Green Tea Plantation is located in the South Jeolla Province in Korea, and it is very famous for their acres of green-tea fields, which is visited by tourists and locals alike. It's no wonder why many people who want to come here as it’s one of the most scenic places to photograph and easy in getting inspired.

Boseong is far from Seoul, a one-way trip will take you approximately 4 to 5 hours, so plan your trip in advance so you can enjoy your time at Boseong to the fullest. It is easy to find the place if your navigation is well prepared. After a long journey to get to the Boseong Green Tea Plantations, we finally arrived in the early morning of a beautiful autumn Sunday.

When you arrive at the Boseong Green Tea Plantation you need to purchase tickets. Entry to the Boseong Green Tea Plantation is 4,000 Won per person.

After paying the admission charge, we began the short approach to the field.

Boseong Green Tea is a special product produced in Bodsung district and well known for great quality. Boseong County is the largest tea producing area in Korea. It is so called as to be called as DongguyeojI-Seungnam (meaning "tea house" in the Joseon Dynasty). Tea produced in Boseong County is still active in growing tea plants, accounting for 40 percent of the nation's tea production. The surrounding climate and soil provide good conditions for growing a unique green tea that has a distinct taste and aroma.

This tea plantation is also a filming location for a Korean Drama such as Summer Scent (여름향기), Ugly Alert (못난이 주의보), and The Legend of the Blue Sea (푸른 바다의 전설).

Go for a walk up the hill to get to the fields, admiring the rich greenery and enjoying the green tea scent as you go.

This green tea fields is absolutely stunning with its rows of green tea plants that covered the hilly area. I loved the smell of green tea that was in the air and the air is really relaxing and revitalizing.

Honestly, walking through these fields is harder than you think because there are a lot of bees. I hate bugs so much so I was freaked out when I saw there are a lot of bees dancing around. But in the end, I didn't care about them at all because I'm just too excited.

There's a lot of climbing so make sure to wear proper shoes and make sure you dress comfortably. I always like to choose comfy outfits during my trip.

Walking around may be a little bit tiring but you're rewarded with views of the fields, surrounding mountains, and the sea. The plantation is far more beautiful than I had anticipated.

All of the pictures I’ve seen on Instagram are near the base of the tea fields so I presumed you couldn’t climb much farther but there are actually amazing views you can access from the top of the hills.

The tea leaves were still bright green and looked really fresh.

There are benches along the plantation where you can sit down and relax for a while. If you go on a rainy day remember to be careful because there are many stairs very slippery and the climb is really steep.

We really enjoyed our trip to Boseong Green Tea Plantation. If you don't like going outside or hate hiking, this trip might not be for you. But for me, I really like to get out of the house, enjoy the nice weather, and see somewhere new place. I highly recommend it specifically the top which offers a spectacular view of the sea if the weather conditions are good enough.

On our way, we went through a small bamboo forest just located at the exit of the plantation.

There are some restaurants, cafes, souvenir shop, and several green tea ice cream shop. Make sure to stop by the cafe or gift shop before you leave. We enjoyed the beautiful view from our hike and then treated our self to some green tea ice cream.

The green tea ice cream was the best I've had in my life, even though I typically do not like green tea ice cream, and even I can still remember the taste vividly.
