South Jeolla, or Jeollanam-do, is a province in South Korea, the southwesternmost province on the mainland, with a region cut out of it for Gwangju, a city treated as its own administrative region. Off the coast to the south, is the province of Jeju island, and the province is bordered to the east by South Gyeongsang, which grows tea in Hadong County.

Tea is grown in two distinct regions of South Jeolla: Boseong County, along the center of the south coast, and Jangseong County, inland, at the very northernmost border of the province.
