What To Expect
Take this invitation to know the Korean traditional culture of tea ceremony. The ritual is really precise. The origin of the Korean tea culture dates back to the 1st century AD with the introduction of tea seeds from India. From early on, Korean Buddhists recognized the tea ceremony as a form of meditation. It was shared not only among Buddhist monks but also among Confucian scholars.
The royal court ceremony represents the official tea ceremonies performed at the palace. The noble class who led the high society cultures has no doubt contributed to the development of the content and formality of the guest reception ceremony and the handover to the modern era. The informal and private tea ceremonies were also held by the royal households.
Spend the time enjoying the peaceful moment of tea-drinking. Use your five senses when drinking tea. Hear the boiling water with your ears, smell the fragrance with your nose, see its color with your eyes, taste it with your mouth, and feel the warm teacup with your hands. They also say that tea has five tastes - it first tastes bitter, then astringent, then sour, spicy, and finally, sweet. Although a short program, you will be impressed with the subtle touch of the Korean tea culture. In addition, tea ceremony strengthens one's character and discipline, and raise society's moral.
