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 2019 Fall Tea & Culinary Tour led by Tea Master Yoon Hee Kim - a pioneer recognized for introducing Korea's tea and tea culture to American tea professionals and tea enthusiasts - was a great success! And although 2020 tea tours were cancelled in light of the ongoing global pandemic, we continue to receive inquiries. Due to ongoing interest, we plan to offer this series again, both as Fall Tea & Culinary Tour in 2021 and again in the Spring of 2022.
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.
