Paradise in Southern region of Korea

700m Hadong, Jiri San, KyungSangNamdo. Clear mountain stream, Rock based soil, high and cool altitude, the environment is a heaven for growing tea. May is the high season of harvesting this "Bird's tongue" original Korean tea, and processing them to be JakSulCha; A proper term of Korean "green" tea. Since the term "green tea" is a direct translation of Japanese tea, and the process is different, traditional Korean tea farmers address their tea as Bird's tongue = Jak Sul tea.

An honorable retirement.

After 5 years of service, and many many great photos and memories. My army of tea pots salute to their beloved camera.
Finally, my new toy had arrived. No more "point and shot" but SLR! Hopefully the picture quality will improve?!...
