In 1957, Chairman DaehanDaup took over tea fields that were devastated by the Korean War, and established Korea DaehanDaup Co., Ltd. A large tea plantation was established at bare Mountain around Osunbong peak, Hwalsung mountain, 350 meters above sea level.
In addition, about 3 million cedar trees, cypress trees, yew trees, ginkgo trees, maple trees, and camellia trees have been planted, and about 500,000 pyeong(3.3m2) of the 1.7 million pyeong(3.3m2) area has been created to grow some 5.8 million tea trees.

Daehan Dawon Boseong Green Tea Plantation was established in 1994 as Korea’s only green tea tourism farm. In addition, cedar trees that were planted as windbreaks during the tea plantation process decades ago are becoming a specialty of tea gardens.
In the meantime, the tea consumption market has been small and it has been difficult due to economic problems. Thanks to the endless efforts of Daehan Dawon, it is now reborn as a garden where people come to enjoy and contemplate the beautiful tea garden, which is like a green carpet.
The green tea field in Daehan Dawon produces organic high-quality teas such as wild tea, creating a spectacular view that looks like a green carpet.
Korea’s largest green tea field
Boseong, Jeollanam-do, is home of tea that produce about 40 percent of Korea’s green tea. If you go to Bosung, the largest tea field in Korea is gathered. The whole world is green except for the blue sky when you enter the tea field. In May, Bosung is filled with the scent of green tea.
A row of green tea fields on the hillside reminds me of a well-decorated garden. The cedar, bamboo, and Asian Fringe Tree are surrounded by a green tea field with an endless green curve.
Green tea tastes great when it’s sunny, big temperature difference and high humidity. Boseong has all the climate, soil and terrain for tea cultivation. Green tea tastes better because it is grown naturally by sowing seeds on mountain slopes.
If you look around the green tea field and come down, you can see the factory that dries the tea. You can also learn how to drink tea with green tea experiences such as tea leaf picking and tea making.
Cedar Road and Cedar Forest
Tunnel-like cedar forest trails are another pleasure in a tea plantation trip. The cedar forest path of Boseong Green Tea Field is beautiful enough to be selected as the most beautiful road in Korea.
About 3 million trees, such as cedar, cypress, juniper, ginkgo, maple, bamboo, cherry, and magnolia, serve as wind-break forests to prevent the wind to green tea fields.
It is a forest created to protect farmland, orchards, ranches and houses from the wind. The trees used in wind-proof forests are usually large, fast-growing, wind-resistant cedar, pine, fir, thorns, and zelkova trees.
Central Observatory and Sea Observatory
The view of the Bosung green tea field is at a glance from the central observatory in Bosung. If you go a little further up from the central observatory, it’s the ocean observatory. When the weather is clear, you can see the sea far away.
Another surprising fact is that CNN has chosen the must-visit tourist attraction in Korea, ’31 amazing scenery around the world’. It is even more amazing and popular among foreign tourists because it is the only place in Korea.
You can’t miss the sweet green tea ice cream when you come down from a light tour of the tea field. Green tea ice cream with a sweet, bitter smell of green tea! It makes me feel relieved for a moment.
