The signs outside did not do this place justice. We almost didn't go in because it looked like it was the usual sweets and sandwiches. Instead we found a place where the food was organic, tasty and homemade. The women who worked their explained the different flower teas and prepared all the food on site. This place may not be...

The teas were wonderful; the ambiance was great. A very casual shop to buy teas to take home, or to consume on site. Located in Insadong, this is perfect for a break from shopping in the antiques district.

Neighbourhood Profile
Insadong
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.
