Boseong Green Tea Fields
A couple of weeks ago, I took a trip to go see the green tea fields with two of my fellow English teachers from my orientation. If you are curious about Boseong and you ask someone what is there to do here, they will almost always tell you about the green tea fields. Unfortunately, that’s all they will tell you about Boseong because that’s all that’s here.
Luckily for me, the tea fields are only about a 10-minute taxi ride away so it was pretty easy getting there and our taxi driver was super nice. This post is going to be less of me talking about my experience and more picture heavy because I think the pictures pretty much speak for themselves. The tea fields were absolutely beautiful and I would love to go again.
If you are a nature lover and don’t mind getting some exercise, then follow the trail that takes you in a big loop around the tea plantation. It’s a bit of a hike with lots of inclines and rocks but it is so beautiful up in the trees and mountains. If you are someone that would rather stay on low ground and just take pictures, that’s fine too as there is plenty of space for photo-ops.
I also was able to try some green tea ice cream for the very first time and it was pretty good. The taste of the tea was very mild (thankfully, because I actually don’t like the taste of tea, lol) yet the ice cream still had that milky/creamy taste that is so familiar when it comes to ice cream.
Overall, I really enjoyed my experience at the tea fields and I hope to visit again one day.
