be-oom is a new addition to London’s tea scene, serving hand-picked Korean teas sourced from small farms in the Boseong and Hadong regions. They also sell tea ceramics and run Korean tea tasting and tea blending events (see Facebook page for dates).
Their tea house in the vibrant Exmouth Market offers a peaceful ‘garden’ – actually a greenhouse in a secluded courtyard. The accent here is very much on relaxation.
I stumbled upon the place while cycling in London yesterday and keep wondering if I dreamed it or not. The delicious persimmon leaf tea I drank (and bought to take home) and the friendly knowledgeable Korean staff seemed real enough though. I’ll definitely be going back to check!
