O’Sulloc’s tea is organic and grown on volcanic Jeju island off the south coast of Korea. It is very hard to find outside of Korea and finding this outlet in Busan was a real treat. There is a shop downstairs and tearoom upstairs with a green tea based menu of toasties, scones and cakes. I was a little disapointed when my Illohhying green tea was served in a mug and the tea placed inside a teabag. I found the tea too light for my taste, and prefer O’Sulloc’s senjak and Master Tea which has much more body and just improves with each brew. We also tried a delicious oolong.

I’m all stocked up with Korean tea thanks to this find. The tea is expensive but well worth the price for the quality, delicious flavour and the way each cup unfolds, revealing new aspects every time your rebrew the tea.

If you do not speak or read Korean, you will need this map. Look out for Paris Baguette on Gwangbok-ro (Fashion Street), then you should spot O’Sulloc on the other side of the street, with a brown, corner facade. It’s open til 10pm. 

Nampo metro station is one stop from Jagalchi and the fish market.
