The Autumn Green Tea flowers blooming

Green tea is grown in Korea on Jeju Island and in Southern parts of Korea. Green tea was first introduced to Korea during the reign of Queen Seondeok (632 - 647). Tea helps ward off drowsiness and invigorates one's mind and body, so Buddhist monks used it as an aid in cultivating their minds.

As you might heard the best green tea is picked in spring and the tea flowers are blooming with small tiny white flowers in September - November in the bottom part of the tea bush.

Green tea has also seads which can be seen together with the tea flowers.
