October 18, 2011 in Boseong-gun (,) Jeollanam-do, South Korea. We visited the Daehan Green Tea Plantation (대한다원,) whose seeds were originally planted during the Japanese occupation. The plantations in Boseong produce nearly half of the green tea farmed in the country. 

We picked a fantastic day to visit, as the skies were clear, the weather was cool and comfortable, and the colors of fall were just starting to show themselves.
