We had a very informative session with Charlene and her Tea Appreciation. She is quite knowledgable and speaks very passionately and eloquently about tea. Her session will likely dispel all that you think you knew about tea; as well the dim sims are wonderful. A...More

The owner's daughter was very thorough and knowledgeable. She was also very patient in explaining and allowing us to try the various teas. Prices tend to be on the high side. You can do much better buying in Taiwan.

almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony
continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to
the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill.
