Osulloc Tea House

30 Aug 2015 | Seoul, South Korea —

One Saturday morning, my cousin-in-law arrived in Korea to attend a 5-day baking training starting on the following Monday. She informed me on the same day of her arrival because she thought my schedule was too hectic. Even though we didn’t prepare any itinerary, it was also relieving that it wasn’t her first time to set foot in Korea. Else, she couldn’t get the most of her short stay.

The next day, we visited 오설록티하우스 (O’sulloc), a famous tea house from Jeju right after we had lunch nearby in Dongdaemun. This tea house is the perfect place for green tea lovers like me, but not for Danny. Out of the main ingredient which is green tea, they are able to make cakes, pastries, shakes, bingsu (shaved ice), hot and cold drinks. They also sell green tea powder and surprisingly, jam. Yes, green tea milk spread for ₩8,500 per jar.


Here are our orders:

Chiffon cake with cream at the middle — ₩5,000

Hot green tea latte — ₩5,500

King O Fredo — ₩8,500

King O Fredo is a green tea bingsu with red beans, green tea brownies, green tea ice cream and a piece of coconut cookie. The taste wasn’t that mind-blowing but had a good presentation, though. Unexpectedly, everything wasn’t bitter rather a bit sweet to almost bland. Our orders didn’t quite impress us and the prices are higher than average, too. Nevertheless, I would still like to try some of the other products. In addition, there are also branches  around Seoul specifically in Myeongdong, Gangnam, Insadong, Cheonggyecheon and Samcheong-dong.

Note: This is based on our honest opinion and personal experience only.

  1. Omg I love love loveeeeee green tea!! Definitely gonna check this place out the next time I go to Korea~
    Strangely, I’m kind of happy that you found the stuff there to be on the blander side since I tend to like my desserts on the lightly sweet side haha
