Yesterday was the third day of the three-day Seol Nal (Korean Lunar New Year) holiday. Hubby and I woke up late and ate the leftover Seol Nal food while watching the replay of Misty, a new K-drama that airs on JTBC every Friday and Saturday 11:00 PM. It’s been a while since the last time we got hooked into a K-drama together.
After watching Friday night’s episode, we headed to Imperial Palace for some chill time as suggested by Hubby. I made a phone reservation on the way to the hotel to secure a table for us, then I realized it was still a holiday so the place would not be that crowded.
Imperial Palace is a four-star premium hotel located in the heart of business and cultural center of South Korea’s thriving capital, Seoul. The hotel features luxurious European styling which caught my heart.
We ordered the afternoon tea set for two. For the drinks, you can choose only americano or any of the teas in the menu. While looking at the tea selection, I realized that I have all the teas at home and there was nothing new to try. I was about to order a glass of champagne instead when the staff recommended quince tea or mo gwa cha which was not written on the menu. It was something I hadn’t tried so I gave it a go.
Drinks were served right away but it took about 20 minutes for the food to arrive.
