Christmas In A South Korean Tea Garden & More

Korea may not be one the first place you think of when tea production is mentioned, but as this article in the Korea Times notes, the Posong County region is something of a hotbed of tea cultivation. Of course, at this time of year, as the photo indicates, there's nothing particularly hot about the area, but then again there are the green tea baths at the bathhouse mentioned near the end of the piece.

If you're gearing up for a grand tour of the world's great tea regions or if you're just in the mood for a little armchair travel, be sure to take a look at this article, from The Hindu, about an Indian hotel in a converted tea factory or this one, from South Africa's Independent Online, about the gradual rise of India's tea tourism industry.
