#1: retail tea merchants in HK ?

Posted on 2006-07-16 08:18:07 by Draconus

Off to Hk on holiday soon. Are there one or two retail merchants of tea
that you could recommend in HK? I would presume there would be dozens but
whilst I would love to do a tea shop crawl I think my wife may have other
ideas !

Maybe even a shop that gave classes.

I know some Yue Hwa stores have a lot of tea - but last time I was there I
didnt really know what I was looking at and whether the quality of their tea
was reasonable.

TIA

Mal Oz of Draconus...

If you fo visit Yu Hwa stores in Central district, check out the Shuangjiang
Mengku '100 year' Old Tree cake. A picture is featured on my blog at
<a href="http://teemann.blogspot.com" target="_blank">http://teemann.blogspot.com</a> . It is amusingly good from a departmental
store offering, and, only Yu Hwa is carrying it at the moment, as it is
under their label. I have tried other '100 year' old tree cake from Mengku,
but there is a slight difference in taste.

Here are some of them you might find interesting:

Sunsing, Rm 3201, 32/F, Soundwill Plaza, 38 Russell St., Causeway Bay, HK.
Tel: 2832 2889

Lam Kie Yuen, G/F., 105-107 Bonham Strand E., Sheung Wan, HK, Tel: 2543 7154

The Best Tea House, G/F., Great Wall Building, 11 Cheung Shun St., Cheung
Sha Wan, HK, Tel: 2786 3083

Take a walk through Bonham St., you will find even more shops tucked away in
corners...

Great will do - according to your picture the price $hk18.00 looks pretty
reasonable too. Thanks.

Yes I know the Yue Hwa in Central very well and I appreciate the other
addresses.
I understand that the Tea Museum in Hong Kong park also offers a free
introduction to tea class - I think I'll be checking that out too.

I second the recommendation for Sun Sing (the Causeway bay location).
I was there a few weeks ago and the pu'erh selection is mindblowing and
the service is phenomenal.

I was, at that time, a ratty backpacker, but after realising that I was
serious about tea Stephen, the salesman, pulled out (and brewed) tea
after tea for me. I got a good bit of education and tried some fairly
old teas. At one point as Stephen was preparing to brew some 1970's
Xiaguan I informed him that there was no way I could afford the tea.
He just smiled and said that it didn't matter and that I should know
what an older tea tasted like.

I walked with a sizeable bundle of tea and a beautiful tiny yixing pot
for my better sheng pu'erh.

Cheers,

Cameron

&gt; I second the recommendation for Sun Sing (the Causeway bay location).
&gt; I was there a few weeks ago and the pu'erh selection is mindblowing and
&gt; the service is phenomenal.

I have bought Pu'erh teas from Sun Sing over
the internet. Their service is excellent, and the
teas of impecable breeding and provenance. Their
staff *can* tell you about each tea they sell in
detail. I had to sell one wife and two of my children
and remortgage my house for 23 grams or so, but
it was worth it. I do miss them -- the grams of
tea that is -- after all, we drank them. I'd go to
HK, but I'm advised that that would be a very
dangerous undertaking for me.

&gt; I was, at that time, a ratty backpacker, but after realising that I was
&gt; serious about tea Stephen, the salesman, pulled out (and brewed) tea
&gt; after tea for me. I got a good bit of education and tried some fairly
&gt; old teas. At one point as Stephen was preparing to brew some 1970's
&gt; Xiaguan I informed him that there was no way I could afford the tea.
&gt; He just smiled and said that it didn't matter and that I should know
&gt; what an older tea tasted like.

Good for Stephen! Good for you!!

&gt; I walked with a sizeable bundle of tea and a beautiful tiny yixing pot
&gt; for my better sheng pu'erh.

Cameron, it sounds as though you were in
excellent hands. One day, I'll follow you.

Best,
Michael

Great. Looks like I'll definitely take a look then...I'm, pretty sure I can
lose the wife in Lane Crawfords across the road for an hour or so !
