Tea Therapy
티테라피

 

Koreans have enjoyed herbal tea for a long time, from barley to corn and boxthorn and solomon's seal. At Tea Therapy you get to comfortably try traditional teas that need only hot water and three minutes of time. All the ingredients that go into the teas are prepared in-house.

Find a tea that suits you

If you don't know which of the various tea flavors to choose, try the simple test at Tea Therapy. There are different tea types that will suit you depending on whether you are a heavy person, how you walk or what your digestion is like. Every tea has its own description. If you feel pain behind your eyes or in your shoulders from stress, then you might want to try the local “Hyangtong” tea. If you're tense all the time and can't sleep well, maybe try the “Anshim” tea with jujubes.

Tea Therapy offers a special lunch menu alongside their tea. It is a healthy meal, available from 12:30 to 14:00. The menu includes tofu salad and flying fish roe, mushroom taco rice, salmon top rice, beef and bean curry. And all menus include side dishes, soup, tea and a small salad..

Tea class, foot bath and other programs

The Haengrang Branch is in part of the restored birth house of Yun Posun, which has been selected as a cultural asset. Therefore, the facility is situated in the midst of a classic atmosphere. In one corner near the entrance you can find the foot bath zone. It's a cozy healing space where you can enjoy tea during the foot bath. It is great to relax over a cup of aromatic tea or a book. The foot baths are available to anybody who orders tea, but foot bath products come with an extra cost of 5,000 won.

The Type A foot bath products are effective for stressed eyes and headaches, and the Type B foot bath products are for if you feel heavy and poor circulation. Tea Therapy also offers a tea class to those interested. The topics include “tea therapy for stress” or “tea good for women” and are easy to comprehend. They include informative stories and tea tasting. For example, “tea therapy for stress” talks about 10 different ingredients that reduce stress, such as mint, betony, tangerine peel and chrysanthemum. The class ends with a tea tasting. It is an opportunity to approach tea more easily and in a fun way.

Tea Therapy's Two Branches
