Lovely place, nice traditional teas, reasonable prices. This place is a great escape in the middle of Insadong. Recommended if you need to escape the bustle for an hour or so. I'd happily return.

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
