The Old Teashop
We went upstairs ... that's where the birdies are
You can't visit Seoul without trotting off to Insadong to experience a teahouse.
Met up with El and Candace, my companions at the War Museum and we hunted through Insadong's back alleys until we found Yetchatjip, the old tea house.
This place has the atmosphere of a slightly organised junk shop, with stuff everywhere, little tables to sit at or in our case a little private area with cushions on the floor for us to sit on. There are even a host of small birds flying around freely. Luckily they didn't come into our area as I'd be a little worried about extra bits in the tea.
We tried Jujube (heavy, date flavour); Double Heaven (also a bit heavy) and Chrysanthemum (so light it almost didn't exist) so in the end the tea didn't rock, but the atmosphere/experience did.
