“A great tea shop...worth a visit!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Well I wanted to pay a visit to a local tea shop whilst in Penang and stumbled upon this place when I was on a stroll in George Town. It is located just along Jalan Campbell (Campbell Street) and is a second generation tea shop now owned by the daughter of the family who started it. It is a very pleasant find, and I ended up spending 2 hours of my morning chatting to the owner, Mei Ling Ng, and she definitely knew her teas :)

What makes this place different is the quality notion of the tea sold ensuring that every packet you buy is top notch, and not mass produced by a factory. They actually collect the teas directly from the plantation in China and package it on site at the back of the shop. I tried two types and they were certainly very refreshing and delightful!!

I would highly recommend a visit, it is a great way to chat to a local, find out more about the asian teas and of course purchase some good quality tea for back home. Oh and she kindly recommended a great place for some delightful lunch afterwards too :)

“Tremendous Tea”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

George Town is full of wonderful surprises, and the best way to find them is to walk along the streets of the historical part of the city. While walking along Lebuh Campbell, my husband and I spotted a lovely tea shop. It was early in the evening, but the owners of the shop welcomed us in. Upon entering this house of Camellia sinensis, we saw tea cakes lining the walls. Both of us have never seen so many tea cakes in our lives.
Being in Asia, we figured purchasing high-quality tea would be a good idea. We have a very good tea shop back home and have visited TeeGschwendner in Berlin, but the knowledge and experience of Ng Mei Ling convinced us she was quite the expert and has the best teas available. Every year, Ng spends at least a month in China, visiting the tea plantations and negotiating the purchases for her family’s two stores in George Town. Though it was only 30 minutes before their schedule closing, she asked us if we would like a tea ceremony and sample their teas. We didn’t want to impose, but everyone insisted. Her brother laughed, and stated that they have a very good customer that holds the record for time in their store. That customer came in at breakfast time and did not leave until the next morning!
Ng was very patient with us and explained the teas we were drinking. Some of their teas come from 130 year old, 4 meters tall tea trees. Like fine wines, the older a tree is, the better quality of the tea that is harvested. She even told us how the teas would taste, including their oolong which had a sweet after-taste. No sugar is needed with the oolong we sampled.
After almost 90 minutes of tea tasting and pleasant conversations, we bought two different types of teas to take back home with us. We wanted to take more home with us, but our suitcases were getting rather full with everything we had purchased in Southeast Asia. But! We were not worried as Ng stated she could ship us their teas to the United States. So, next year, when it is in George Town, we will be ordering a kilogram of their top-quality Dragon Well tea (comes from Hangzhou in Zhejiang province).
See the big tourist spots in George Town, but make sure to allow some time to experience some of the best tea you will ever have. Even coffee drinkers will appreciate the teas available at this great Penang tea shop.
