Suyeon Sanbang Tea House [수연산방/壽硯山房], sometimes also simply Suyeonsanbang, is a traditional teahouse run by the granddaughter of Korean author and children’s book writer Yi Tae-jun (이태준/李奎泰, 1904-1970), who lived in this house. Yi, who wrote under the nom de plume Sang-heo (상허/尙虛), is considered to be Korea’s answer to French author Guy de Maupassant (which is also his Korean nickname). In the essay Eastern Sentiments (Museorok/무서록), he describes how the house was built and talks about its history.

Opened on August 1 1998, the tea house is located in Seoul’s neighborhood Seongbuk [Seongbuk-dong/성북동], in the Seongbuk District [Seongbuk-gu/성북구], just vis-à-vis Cafe 256 [카페256] and in short walking distance to Ducksoo Presbyterian Church [덕수교회].
