Seoul's New Tea Culture With A Modern & Locally-Focussed Take
Time stops when you arrive to Tea Collective, a light-filled cafe space in Seoul’s affluent and upmarket area of Cheongdam-dong serving the finest high-quality selection of teas unlike anything you’ve tried before.
Founded by Artment.dep, a collective of art directors and designers specialising in brand and spatial design, the group decided to create a space of their own, creating an impeccably-produced cafe space aesthetic and design identity.
Here, however it is the high quality ingredients and teas they hold on offer. Utilising 100% locally-grown and harvested high-grade teas, they also create their own blended teas using fresh seasonal fruits, such as Vitamin Yuzu-Cha (Citron Tea) or Gamip-cha (Dried Persimmon Leaf Tea). Even offering Roast Grain Powder Tea made from a combination of multi-grains. In the cafe, their offerings include Vegan Cereal using organic crackers, nuts, fresh seasonal fruits and oat milk.
A wall of magazines and books features in the cafe, from ACNE PAPER, Cahiers d’Art to ALLA CARTA magazine all available for peruse, whilst the space also plays host to a variety of talk events and workshops, connecting the young entrepreneurial design community in Seoul and those with an appreciate for craftsmanship; both traditional and contemporary.
Driven by quality and craftsmanship in all elements of their space, Tea Collective is a reflection of Seoul’s growing creative landscape where the local community can connect and recharge.
