Tiangpang Afternoon Tea is located about seven minutes by foot away from Ewha Woman's University Station.
Back when the cafe first opened, it was located in the basement of the building next door, but since then they have moved locations and refurbished the entire experience.
When you first get to the teahouse, you can see many plants near the door to greet you on your way in.
Tiangpang is a teahouse with a long history that makes it loved by generations. Having been open since 2001, it has gained popularity with many.
However, maintaining a teahouse for 20 years in Korea is known as a big feat since tea is not to everyone's preference.
When you enter the teahouse, you will be overwhelmed with the number of teas on display. You'll be embraced by the aroma of various teas, all at the same time. There are is over 400 different types of teas to choose from too so it's very diverse.
When you open the menu, you can feel the owner's enthusiasm for tea, based on the detailed instructions provided on how to drink the tea. It is treated not just as a beverage, but as an experience.
It is also an inclusive experience since the instructions are available in Korean, English, and Chinese.
While you can go to the teahouse whenever the desire arises, the experience will not be the same if you go without a reservation. In the instructions provided, you will see a fully set table with a specific method of how to enjoy, but this full table setting is not possible unless you make a reservation in advance.
The interior is simple but coordinates well. The walls are a simple blue which help create a warm and soothing atmosphere.
In addition, the teahouse is decorated with orange lights which further amplify the warm and relaxing feeling first indicted by the blue walls.
Not only can you find the shelves decorated with the various types of teas, but ornate mugs as well.
When we finally found a place to sit, we then went up to the counter and ordered an iced Berry Berry Berry (7,400 KRW), an ice Kilimanjaro (8,400 KRW) and a Creme Brulee (5,500 KRW).
What makes this teahouse a bit different than other cafes is that once you order, you can sit in your seat. When the drinks are ready, the staff will bring them over to your seat, rather than you having to go get them.
The staff will also give you instructions on how to enjoy the tea properly. These details really make it feel like a professional teahouse.
Once our drinks came out, they also came with two cups filled with bear-shaped ice so of course we had to take a picture. 😍
The Berry Berry Berry was sweet and sour and very refreshing.
The ice Kilimanjaro was a sweet black tea topped with a milk foam that created a soft sweet drink that was really delicious.
The Creme Brulee was filled with a cream that melts in your mouth but was not overly sweet.
The owner of the teahouse studied black tea in Japan has the certificate displayed as part of the interior. This makes it clear why they are also able to speak in Japanese!
Come to Tiangpang and enjoy a skillfully-crafted cup of tea. We're sure you have a relaxing time!
