Hadong in Gyeongsangnam Province and Boseong in Jeollanam Province are two of South Korea’s primary hubs of green tea culture. The former is rooted in a rich green tea history, while the latter is synonymous with splendid views of verdant green tea fields and green tea-inspired culinary delights. Be inspired by the beauty of these regions in the photographs below.
