Moon Bird Does Think of Only The Moon - Traditional Teahouse - Seoul

Moon Bird Does Think Of Only The Moon - Insadong - Seoul - South Korea (TeaHouse)

Insadong is the place to go to if you're looking to experience the more traditional side of Seoul. While there are a plethora of traditional restaurants, tea houses and stores selling all sorts of handicrafts and souvenirs on the main street the most interesting places can be found down the small back alleys, one of these places being the beautifully named tea house, Moon Bird Does Think of Only The Moon.

I say this every time but I really can't stress enough how you must visit a traditional tea house when in Korea, the cosy atmosphere, the smell of brewing herbs and graffiti covered walls are something you can only experience in Korea. I could seriously spend the whole day just relaxing in a tea house. It was a bitterly cold winter's day when we visited this tea house and what was really lovely was that they had already put out blankets and hot water bottles for the customers to warm themselves up with, I could have fallen asleep right then and there it was so wonderful and cosy.

Yujacha tea is one of my favourites and I always make sure to order it when I'm in Korea (as well as bring a jar or two home of it) and the sweet warm citrus flavour is the perfect thing to warm you up on a cold day. We also ordered some deep fried mochi which came covered in icing sugar and a sweet and chilli sauce on the side to dip them in and the also gave us some traditional rice cakes as an extra treat, one of my favourite things about Korea is how they always give you extra treats as service.

Whilst enjoying our hot drinks we took in the atmosphere, reading all the little love notes left by past customers some of which came from far away countries and some left by guest who visited almost a decade past, of course we made sure to leave our mark to and I hope one day we can go back there and find those little memoirs we left of our amazing trip to Seoul.

Where would you love to visit in Korea?
