brief tour with cooling tea
Nov 2021
very informative for successful medicinal tea business. Must go when you visit Ipoh specially when walking around old town area. It's located near Concubine lane. It's easy to find due to it's blue painted shop. They will make you tryout all their tea so it's a good way to cool down after a long walk.

Located near the concubine streetm Ho Yan Hor museum worth visiting as it echoed the subject of the classic brand. Besides seeing the journey of the founder, types of herbal tea was also offered during my trip. It was their 80th anniversary hence some promotions were held and it is worth your time!

Excellent!

The museum was vintage and cute i feel like living in it!! The flow of the museum is great, there were samples of roots and tea leaves for their teas which is amazing! The history behind Ho Yan Hor is very interesting, i enjoyed seeing pictures of the early beginning of the brand, it’s really cool! The museum is air conditioned and so comfortable for us to take our time to read everything! The staffs were sooo friendly, warm and helpful! The tea tasting session with the staffs is my fav! ♥️

Like the tea I never knew before
Dec 2020 • Family
At first we're reluctant to enter because we never heard of the brand name. But the staff attending to us was very nice and friendly. He even explained the introduction and history to us in Malay as my parents is not fully fluent in English. The store follow SOP guidelines and help us with hand sanitising. He also remind us to take careful step on the stairs as it is steep and narrow. The whole interior was really like walking down in memory lane style. Then we're served with nice, bitter, new taste of 4 kind of tea that engraved in my tongue forever 😝. We purchased some teas and take memorable pictures together. I really recommend visiting this museum once at least.
