SEOGWANG/JEJU/SOUTH KOREA

CAMELLIA SINENSIS

SEOGWANG

The tea plantation Seogwang is on the island Jeju and benefits from the very fertile volcanic soil, the clear and clean water and the good climate conditions. The tiny, sophisticatedly worked olive green leaves are a typical feature. They are steamed and roasted in line with traditional Korean tea production processes.
A pleasntly mild green tea with a flowery and fresh taste and a lemon yellow infusion…

JEJU

Because of the relative isolation of the island, the people of Jeju have developed a culture and language that are distinct from those of mainland Korea. Jeju is home to thousands of local legends. Perhaps the most distinct cultural artifact is the ubiquitous dol hareubang “stone grandfather” carved from a block of basalt.

Another distinct aspect of Jeju is the matriarchal family structure, found especially in Udo and Mara, but also present in the rest of the province. The best-known example of this is found among the haenyeo, literally meaning “sea women”, who were often the heads of families, because they controlled the income. They are representative of the matriarchal family structure of Jeju.They earned their living from free diving, often all year round in quite cold water, without scuba gear, in order to harvest abalones, conches, and a myriad of other marine products. It is thought that women are better at spending all day deep-water diving because they resist cold better. In the early 1960s, 21% of women on the island were free divers, providing 60% of the island's fisheries revenue. However, because of rapid economic development and modernization, as of 2014 only about 4,500 haenyeo, most aged over 60, were still actively working.
