Korean Tea Ceremony

Resource Type: 

Jaesup Pak, professor of Korean language and literature at Inje University in Korea, and Tea Master Youngmi Yi introduce cha (tea) and darye (etiquette for tea). Tea was introduced to Korea from China sometime in the 6th or 7th centuries, and since then Koreans have developed an approach to tea with fewer formal rituals and greater range of flexibility in enjoyment of tea. In Korea, tea has always been more than just a simple beverage. Appreciation of music, poetry, dance, and painting prospered as part of tea ceremonies among the elite and the royal court. See the MyungWon Cultural Foundation for more information on Korean tea ceremonies.
