South Korea: Jeju: O’sulloc Museum

The O’sulloc Museum, located on Jeju-do Island near Seogwangdawon. The “o” in “o’sulloc”, means to appreciate and enjoy, and it also stands for the origin of sulloc, only sulloc, and of sulloc tea. [Source]

O´sulloc Tea House
Seoul-si Jung-gu Myeongdong2-ga 33-1
Date Visited: 2011 November

This is my second visit at a tea farm. My first was in Meijiawu Tea Village at Hangzhou, China. In terms of presentation, I prefer my experience in China – full explanation on why tea is healthy and on how the farmers prepare the tea. But as for the photo-opportunity, I love it here in Jeju, because I was sick when I visited China before.

There is a viewing deck to see the overall site of the tea farm, and you can actually get close to the plants.  They also offer product as O’sulloc green tea milk, green tea bread, green tea cake, green tea cookies, O’sulloc green tea powder, green tea spread, etc.

If Jeju is too far from your planned itinerary, you can still experience and taste the O'sulloc teas on local stores in Seoul.
