Tea has been an integral part of Korean life and culture, steeped in 2,000 years of rich history, tradition and philosophy. Despite being one of the earliest tea-originating countries, Korea's tea and tea culture have remained largely unknown to the western world, especially in comparison to its neighboring countries. Whether you are a seasoned tea professional or are just beginning your tea journey, this 8-day immersive tour should not be missed.
Our Korea Tea & Culinary Tour is curated and led by Korea's Tea Ambassador Yoon Hee Kim - a pioneer recognized for introducing Korea's tea and tea culture to American tea professionals and tea enthusiasts. And although 2020 & 2021 tea tours were canceled in light of the ongoing global pandemic, we continue to receive strong inquiries. Due to ongoing interest, we are currently looking to offer this series again, both as Fall Tea & Culinary Tour in 2022 and again in the Spring of 2023, once international travel safely resumes with greater ease.
Discover rare, authentic gems as you learn about the rich history and culture of Korea with an intimate group of fellow tea and food enthusiasts. Although the tour will include visits to historical and cultural sites as they relate to tea studies, this is an educational & tea sourcing journey and not a sightseeing tour.
