BOOKMARK this post if you love Green Tea as much as I do 🍃 
After being indifferent to matcha for most of my adult life, my tastebuds were awoken to just how amazing this herb is. An acquired taste, as some would say. Despite living only 40 minutes from the biggest organic tea plantation in South Korea, I hadn’t yet had the opportunity to see, so I spent a morning there indulging in all things matcha. Here’s a few things you can do at the Boseong Green Tea fields.

1️⃣ 🍃 Eat green tea ice cream. Green tea can be a little bitter on first taste, but as soon as your pair it with something sweet, it takes on a totally different flavour profile. My recommendation is ice cream, as the sweet dairy cuts through the astringency of the tea perfectly.

2️⃣ 🍃 Buy green tea face masks. Trust me when I say that green tea is the absolute plug when it comes to skincare, especially for face masks. You can pick up a bulk pack at a reasonable price at any of the shops at the entrance to the plantation.

3️⃣ 🍃 Take pictures in the green tea fields. Being South Korea, an opportunity to take a photo is never wasted, and these green tea fields make for some jaw-dropping backdrops.
