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

Although the museum is small and not much. Experiencing different teas is worth it! The presentation and atmosphere is beautiful. It is a little hidden off of Insadong, so make sure to bring a map!

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

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

Welcomed break from the crowds of Insadong, great for chilling out after a long day of shopping and sight seeing. Teas are exotic but expensive...

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
