This teahouse is a good lunching and tea place. Good atmosphere, good music and good food. Teatime at about 3pm is a good quiet time and you can try some of the house tea, beauty of theeast.

Great tea house with wide selection of teas to try and buy. Little restaurant on the side that does a nice yum cha however, with a limited selection.

We visited the shop and spent some time with Vincent and his daughter. Both were very helpful and willing to share their knowledge with us, despite us being beginners. At the same time, the hour intro course was very well structured and wasnt too overwhelming....More

Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful
sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling
sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its
blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an
Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit
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.
