The Beautiful Tea Museum

This renovated Korean house is very open and flowing. This multipurpose space has a lot happening in it, but it doesn’t feel cramped. There is a tea shop in the front, in the back they have pottery or art displayed, and the center has many tables for enjoying tea. Their tea collection is for the novice or for the connoisseur. They have coffee and green tea lattes as well. The stand out teas here is their collection of pu-er teas (oxides black teas). Here you can get a 20 year-old tea for only 12 dollars, but if you want to spurge you can get the fifty year old tea for only 42 dollars. If you are hungry, they offer waffles, shaved ice desserts and rice cake. This is a great place to rela with friends catching up.

Inner Garden Tea House in Nagwon

I am always on the lookout for new cafes and new places to take guests to in Korea. I was lucky enough to stumble upon 뜰안 (Inner Garden) near my office. It’s got a great sense of traditional style and the tea is pretty good. I really like the little garden they have and their hanok styling. My only complaint is that they try a bit too hard to copy my other favorite tea house: the second best tea house in Seoul over in Samcheongdong.
