About Hadong, South Korea

Hadong County is a county in South Gyeongsang province, South Korea, and is one of the most well-known tea-growing regions in Korea. It is the southwesternmost county on the mainland of South Gyeongsang, and it borders South Jeolla to the west, although it does not directly border the tea-growing region of Boseong.

Mt. Jiri or Jirisan is located along the west border of this province, and teas from here are sometimes identified or marketed as from the Mt. Jiri or Jirisan region rather than Hadong county.

The Dong Cheon cooperative, an association of small farmers, is located in this region; many of the teas from this region available on the Western market are sourced through this cooperative.

Tea production in Hadong includes both plantation grown tea and "wild harvest" tea. Although the tea plant is not native to Korea, it was introduced to the area hundreds of years earlier, and became naturalized, surviving in the wild, and these plants are now utilized for wild-harvest tea.
