The 6th Hadong Mountain Dew Tea Cultural Festival
May 24 ~ May 27, 2001


Hadong is considered one of our nation's sacred grounds for tea culture, as it is the site of the first Korean TEA harvest in 828 AD by Sir. Daeryeom.
Hadong Tea undergoes 9 grueling, repetitious cycles of painstaking hand picking, rubbing and drying starts during the rainy season and lasts until late May.
During this period, the Ssangyesa Temple area in Hadong is filled with the aroma to tea leaves. Join in the leaf picking and tea sampling events.
