You’ve been living in Seoul for a while and want to escape the busy & crowded streets? You want to enjoy a cup of tea or a coffee with a stunning view over gangnam? Then this post should be interesting for you!
In the middle of gangnam you can find the tea collective. A relaxing cafe in the top floors of a skyscraper nearby Seonjeongneung station.
Everything here invites you to relax – wooden interior, a lot of green plants, soothing background music and even a small pond with (real!) fish can be found here.
Not to mention the stunning view all over gangnam. Indeed a true gem among the coffee and tea places in Seoul! The prices are a bit more on the expensive side but absolutely worth the visit.
It’s a perfect place to get some work done or study – just bring your laptop and you’ll see how you can spend hours here without even noticing it.
As with many people living in modern cities across the world, many of us living in Korea, especially in Seoul, tend to lead very busy, fast-paced lives. By trade, we at Artment.dep are a group of art directors and designers, but we wanted to offer a way for people to slow down, recharge and connect with the local community. That’s how Tea Collective was born. It’s a collection of high-grade teas harvested in local provinces of South Korea. It’s also a physical cafe designed with a natural aesthetic where people can connect with one another, experience local tea varieties and be inspired. Above all, it’s a collective of individuals who share a similar philosophy and actively aim to live a more balanced lifestyle.
