Tea Drinkers in Korea

Tea Drinkers in Korea is a community where people drink, talk, and get to know this world better through tea gatherings. We respect diversity and take tolerance very importantly.  

I started the tea community in 2017 to expand more open and casual tea culture in South Korea. 

Why did I create the Tea Drinkers in Korea? 

  • Suffocation: South Korea is full of coffee drinkers. It was very difficult for me to find a tea gathering. Even if I found a tea event, there were limited seats and high barriers to attend. I soon felt frustrated and exhausted. I thought organizing an event would be easier, faster, and more fun.
  • Meeting Tea Friends: Meeting a tea friend is one of my favorite things! I wanted to meet more tea friends. 
  • Have Fun & Grow: What happens when people who share similar interests meet together? We all get excited, freely share resources, and naturally learn & grow. I wanted to make my or anyone else’s tea journey process enjoyable. 
  • Connect: There was a huge gap between tea businesses and tea drinkers. Tea businesses wanted more customers, however, tea drinkers didn’t even know those tea businesses existed. I wanted to share a place, hold an event at a tea-related place, save time for tea drinkers to find a place, increase sales for tea businesses, create a win-win situation. 
  • Experiment: In the end, there was nothing to lose to create a tea community. I was curious about whether people would join the community. 

Now we have 400+ members. Feel free to join if you are interested in Korean tea culture.
