Picking Green Tea Leaves, Picking Spring

Posted April. 13, 2005 23:18,   


The season for the green tea harvest has come. Farmers look busy picking the green tea leaves, which rise high above the farmland like the tongue of a sparrow, on a green tea farm in Goseong-ri, Aewol-eub, Bukjeju-gun, Jeju Island on April 13.

Green tea, harvested prior to Gokwoo Day (April 20), which is renowned for making all kinds of crops shinier, is known as “Woojeon.”
