A tea friend in Suwon

In one of my random walking trails around Suwon, a beautiful city in South Korea, I was delighted to have spotted this cosy little tea spot in one corner of a potter's workshop. Language was a barrier, so I shall just call her Ms Potter. As it turned out, Ms Potter is also tea lover. Most of her pottery pieces are influenced by her interest in tea and traditional Korean designs.

Despite the difficulty in communication, we quickly bonded over tea. The sweet fragrant smells of the green tea infused with lotus seeds said enough and continue to linger on my palate for some time. Qualities of an excellent tea indeed. Thank you my dear friend. Next time, I'll bring an interpreter along with me.
