What a lovely interesting way to begin a free day during our week in Hong Kong. Tomoko was a very friendly and knowledgeable host who guided the tasting experience of our small group. In a relaxed environment we really enjoyed learning so much about tea from where it was grown, picked and processed, the many different qualities and benefits of... More

Came here in October 2013 with family as we were town visiting family. Like others, I had stumbled upon this great spot during my research for what to do in Hong Kong and we were not disappointed. We had an enjoyable and thorough tea tasting with a gentleman who was very knowledgeable and had the pleasure to meet and converse... More

I visited MingCha Tea house late afternoon on a Monday in May, 2014. They welcomed me right away, and Yumiko offered me tea tasting. After listening to my preferences, she provided me 2 kinds of tea to enjoy. One was Phoenix Supreme, and another was Wuyi Supreme. I drank at least 4 cups of each tea. Both were excellent, and...

Went there after reading the review of others that this is a must go venue. The place is located in a factory building which seems to be a little out when we first arrived. Nevertheless, the interior of the place is well renovated and clean. The guy who is making and explaining the tea to us is an excellent and... More

On my first trip to Hong Kong I had a terrific experience in a teashop. I loved how they showcased each tea and let you try all different kinds. It seemed special, not unlike artisan Coffee is nowadays. From that initial trip my biggest regret was not buying the full kit of porcelain wear and a nice variety of tea.... More

Please use previous comments for finding it easily. I did so, other ways not easy to locate. Inside is calm and nice. They are very friendly and show you, depending on your price range. I chose three. I learned things for preparing any tea, which i did not know before. It is a place for tea-lovers, enjoying strong teas.

We were charmed by this unique place with a refreshing atmosphere, and the warm and friendly people who know how to welcome their guests, and introduce the wonderful world of tea, its philosophy, virtues, and benefits. It's also really nice to sit and relax around the tea table, have a casual conversation with those connoisseurs in such a nice environment.... More

How to put into words..I was overwhelmed with the MingCha Tea House tea selections I was gifted. They are just wonderful and somewhat whimsical. Rose tea - with real roses. And I needed to squeeze the beautiful flowers into the cup. How exciting. And there are so so many others I haven't gotten the chance to try it all, but... More
