Korea Travelogue: O’sulloc and Jeju Glass Museum

Continuing on with the Korean tour in Jeju Island! Our next destination was O’sulloc Museum, dedicated to Korea’s tradition tea culture, built at the entrance of a tea farm owned by Sulloc Tea Company. Our guide urged us to spend less time admiring the tea utensils exhibit and move on to the refreshment section, which serves fabulous green tea soft serve and Swiss rolls.

Look at the super long queue at the café! Be sure to hurry if you want to try the awesome, smooth and intense green tea soft serve ( 4500 Won). Green tea and Yoghurt soft serve (5500 Won) was lovely too.  I can’t vouch for the Swiss roll (4500 Won) though, because it was served frozen as the staff ran out of thawed cakes.

Hong Thai’s brochure states that this is a glass castle, so I was expecting to explore a Cinderella-like castle. I think “glass museum” or “glass theme park” would have been more appropriate terms. In here, all models and displays, even a flower garden, is made entirely from glass.
