The Korean tea ceremony or darye is a traditional form of tea ceremony practiced in Korea. The chief element of this tea ceremony is the ease and naturalness of enjoying tea within an easy formal setting.
Tea ceremonies are now being revived in Korea as a way to find relaxation and harmony in the fast-paced new Korean culture, and at the same time continuing in the long tradition of intangible Korean art.
This event is for anyone who is interested in learning more about the Korean Culture.
