Did you know that there are only three working tea plantations in the US? And one of them is in my home state, South Carolina? Yup! Well, that means, if you're an avid tea drinker like me, all the tea needs to come from outside the country... usually from places like India, China, and Southeast Asia. But, surprise, surprise! Korea grows tea too!
Particularly, GREEN TEA OF GLORIOUS DELICIOUSNESS!!
Thanks to having a 3-day weekend for Buddha's birthday, we headed five hours south to Boseong, the home of Korea's green tea plantations! Little did we know how completely infused in 녹차 nokcha, or green tea, this weekend would be.
