The O’sulloc Tea Museum is located in Andeok-myun, Seogwipo-si (West Jeju). It teaches visitors about Korea’s traditional tea culture. 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’.
The museum first opened in September 2001 and is widely known in Korea. The entire building takes the shape of a green tea cup. It seeks to harmonize the cultures of the West and East, and past traditions with the modern world. Also, the museum is the cradle of Korean tea culture and Korea’s largest tea exhibition space, which strives to pass down and improve Korea’s traditional tea culture as well as to propagate its excellence and value to as many people as possible. Around a million people visit this place every year and they can have experience enjoyable and special tastings through the various menus, including a variety of tea, and learn about the history and tradition of Korean tea as well.
