As others have said tricky to find. Use google earth to help and zoom right in to pinpoint it. IBK is a big building to look for! It also has ‘the tea company’ with ‘beautiful tea room’ in smaller letters underneath. It is in Insadong-gil,...More
We had a fantastic traditional tea experience at this place like never before. The tea comes in a tiny carefully presented tea set and lasts for 5 cups, tasting really extraordinary.
The name of the place is a bit misleading - we expected a little...More
While we had halfway planned to this place, oddly we happened across it by accident while wandering down an alleyway in Insadong. It is a quaint place that considers itself a steward of the tea-brewing and tea-drinking tradition. You can probably spend 10 minutes tops...More
I thought it was a museum so i went there in a side street in insadong and took some effort to find the place where I found that it is a tea house with a collection of porcalain and they sell different kind of teas...More
Nice museum and finally a location in Seoul not inundated with coffee houses. Passionate about artisan teas the variety was descent, though the prices of teas quite expensive. The Jakseol green tea was incredibly delicate as well as sweet and very smooth to the palate.
I'm not a big tea person, but my boyfriend convinced me to try this place, and they had a super tasty Apricot Iced Tea that was fantastic! :)
This place is also great to rest and take a brief respite while shopping in Insadong. Lovely...More
The shop/museum is quite neat as it is as the end of a side-street in Insa-dong. The tea selection was quite good and there is a nice quiet cafe to sit and enjoy the diversity of selection. I don't quite understand the museum aspect but...More
Nestled between Jongno and Samcheongdong, this small neighborhood offers a crash course in various aspects of Korean culture. Rows of shops display traditional Korean goods such as pottery and earthenware, crafts, fans, and more, making it a popular spot for souvenir shopping. The Ssamziegil shopping complex in particular has become a local institution for its unique spiral layout and the many boutique shops
inside that sell handmade crafts and goods. This is the perfect neighborhood to sample a range of Korean dishes, with vegetarian Korean temple cuisine restaurants being a popular draw, but street food carts are just as famous. As a top tourist destination, crowds can swell, particularly on weekends, but you can find some rest and respite in one of the private art galleries or grab a cup of Korean tea in a tea house – many of which are located in beautifully renovated traditional Korean homes.
