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 :)
