During the Japanese occupation of Korea in 1939, the Japanese claimed Bosung to be the region fit to produce black tea for Japan. As the Japanese later fled Korea upon their defeat in WW2, the tea plantations of Bosung had to be abandoned or burned down due to poverty and economic hardships that came with the Korean War. While most plantations turned into your average farm, some tea bushes survived in the wild, waiting patiently to return to civilization. Few years later, with Korea’s rapid economic development, tea culture surely enough returned to Bosung, and the wild tea bushes that survived were used to rebuild the plantations. Today, Bosung is the top producer of green tea in Korea, and the culture and identity of the entire province is dedicated around celebrating green tea.
