    I went here together with my friend and it was really an amazing experience. I’ve been living in Korea for about 2 years now and i thought it would be a normal tea ceremony as first but the lady shared with us many things about the history and the proper procedure for the tea ceremony which was really nice. It was also an uplifting atmosphere and i left the place feeling uplifted. Truly an amazing experience and you should try it too 🙂

    Participating in the traditional Korean tea ceremony with professor Eunju Seo was a lovely experience. I enjoyed my time and was able to better understand the Korean culture. Professor Eunju Seo is a professional with over 20 years of experience of showing the traditional Korean culture. The experience combined traditional Korean clothes, food and etiquette. I love the ceremony’s mantra before drinking tea:
    I am precious.
    I am valuable.
    I am treating myself today.
    I was able to relax and fully enjoy my day. I highly recommend this class to anyone traveling around Seoul.

    It was a wonderful experience! Professor Eunju Seo was very friendly and well-prepared for the lesson. She was very patient and always smiling. She is very passionate about Korean culture and the meaning and spirit behind tea ceremony. It was very interesting to learn about the deep and inspirational meaning behind each action and step of the tea ceremony. I felt very calm throughout the ceremony and it was truly a healing experience for me. I was mesmerised be the grace and meaning of the tea ceremony. It is truly a culture to be passed on to many people as possible, from generations to generations. From the lesson, we got to try traditional Korean snack and yellow tea and even get to experience making the snack ourselves. It was very interesting and fun! It was stress-free and I really enjoyed the process. We really appreciate the kind gesture and hospitality we received. Highly recommended! One of my favourite experience! 🙂

    The host was very kind and seemed so self-esteem of her job. She was so cool and the traditional Korean house was also nice. We brewed the tea several time and I felt the taste of the tea that changed every time. We also learned about the traditional Korean way to greeting “Jeol”. I could feel various korean traditions and it was a strange and unique experience. Probably I’ll never forget about that experience.

    • KoreaTravelEasy    

      Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a beautiful review. We’re happy that you could experience and feel Korean culture. Come back and see us soon. Cheers!
