Unique tea house experience

Serene atmosphere. Gracious and pleasant service. Many exquisite (and expensive) varieties of tea served in traditional korean manner. Vegetarian food, mostly featuring soy, mushrooms, and green tea (yes green tea in the food.) If you like Zen Palate but also want a meditative experience with excellent tea , you will like this place. Plus they offer a high tea ceremony. It's expensive, but not overpriced.

  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
