Wonderful place in the middle of city center. Sit out under the fine autumn sky and trees enjoying Korean traditional teas and desserts.

First visited when a friend brought us 2 years ago and we had sikhye and some rice puffs. Managed to find it this time round when we wandered down a random alley. The tea house is in a beautiful hanok and as the seats inside...More

The entrance to this complex wasn't straightforward to find. If you venture down the laneway on the left side of the complex, you'll find the entrance and the tea house within. The tea house is set in a gorgeous building. We were seated at a...More

The tea here is fairly expensive (we paid $6 or $7), but the portions are large and the tea is rich and delicious. We especially liked jujube, quince and plum. Dawon is a nice refuge, a place where you can unwind in a peaceful garden...More

Found entirely by accident and just what was needed after an afternoon's sightseeing. A 'Tardis' like place: so much bigger on the inside than you'd guess from outside. Excellent selection of teas and 'sweets' - the dried ginger shavings and sweetened garlic pieces are great!

I found information about this tea house online and went there with a friend. It's hidden from the main road and you have to go through a courtyard to find it. The atmosphere is relaxed and you get the feeling of travelling back in time....More

This is the traditional tea house which I visit each time I go to Insadong. I love their wide-range of tea and the ambiance is relaxing. You can choose to either sit on the fllor (traditional Koran style) or at Western-style table. If you choose...More
