A visit to Korea wouldn’t be complete without a teahouse. We found this charming one on our travels.

As the weather was hot we chose an iced green plum tea with pine nuts.

To accompany our tea we ordered a traditional Korean confection called Gangjeong. Made of glutinous rice it is a deep-fried rice puff, extremely light, chewy and hollow inside and coated with honey and puffed rice. Gangjeong can also be coated in a variety of nutty beans, nuts, seeds, pollen, or spice powders and are often served during important events like weddings and New Year celebrations.
