South Korea has a long tea history and rich tea culture. It is considered that the first tea planting started about 1200+ years ago when Buddhist monks brought Camellia Sinensis seeds from China and started tea growing in South Jeolla Province. Local Buddhist temples became the birthplace of Korean tea culture and tea became a very important part of everyday Buddhist practices. During the Goryeo and Joseon Dynasties tea culture evolved and became an important part of royal ceremonies and cultural phenomena reflected in human culture, literature, and poetry. During this time Korean tea ceremony developed into a unique and beautiful performance and turned into a very important event during celebrations and receiving important guests. Korean tea is different and requires a different attitude during the tea brewing process which is reflected in the Traditional Korean Tea Ceremony called Darye.

Tea production in South Korea is concentrated in the South of the country in the Boseong and Hadong regions as well as on Jeju Island. With limited quantity, organic raw material, and almost fully handmade production, this tea is unique and rare.

BOSEONG - Jeollanam province - This place is famous for its small family tea productions and exceptional quality of green tea.

HADONG - Gyeongsang province - Famous for its wild tea grown in the mountains. Thanks to a clean environment, good soil, and the way people relate to tea this place is kind of a mecca for tea in South Korea.

JEJU ISLAND - Due to its volcanic soil, humid and windy climate, and industrial approach, this tea is the most famous in the country.
