(News from 조선우표사 / Korea Stamp Corporation) Tea culture comprises such domains related to tea as cultivation of tea trees, processing of tea leaves, and production and using customs of tea cups and things for boiling. 

The Korean nation encouraged tea cultivation from the period of the Three Kingdoms (early 3rd century BC-mid-7th century), thus establishing the original tea culture.
