If you’re looking for a teahouse or a rest stop in Myeongdong after hectic shopping and want something more Korean than Starbucks or Krispy Kreme, O’Sulloc Tea House is a modern Korean Tea House that specialises in green tea and green tea desserts, but also offer a myriad of other teas in a soothing and cosy ambience.

I ordered an Iced Omija Tea, since omija tea is a Korean tea that I have yet to try. According to CNNGo, omija means “five-flavor berry” because you can supposedly taste five flavors – sweet, sour, salty, bitter and spicy – in the berry. And to be honest they really did hit in the nail on the head on naming that berry. It was quite interesting to taste bitter and salty notes in a tea. Served iced, the tea was also super refreshing. But what I really loved were the homemade mini green tea and earl grey sable cookies they served on the side that were deliciously buttery and intense in tea flavours.
The hubs got the Green Tea Tiramisu which is one of their signature desserts. It was okay I guess, am not really a fan of flavoured tiramisus but I guess there will be fans of this, especially if you are a fan of green tea desserts.
I also visited the O’Sulloc Tea Museum in Jeju Island as part of a tour, you can read about it here.Price: $ Location: Myeongdong Store – Line 2 Euljiro 1-ga Station Exit #5, Seoul. Several other locations in Seoul.
