  • 建築物很有歷史意義,光是欣賞建築本身就很有意涵。 展館內容很精緻。每一間展廳都有詳細的影音解說。各式飲茶的習慣和用具。 展品相當精緻,無論是茶碗還是茶具都保存的相當好,環境舒適,相當不錯。 
  • While the description of the manner of tea and tea, free and clean. Like I don't know Cantonese and English explanation by pictures, so if you are interested in tea and even tourists can enjoy 10 minutes I think.

  • It's in a great park. Fairly extensive collection of teapots. But it's a bit lacking in.. va voom!
  • The art of Chinese Tea is incredibly complicated. You could learn something here and enjoy the Chinese Tea and Chinese music in Lok Cha Hin. This is one of the best place in the world for a hot summer.
  • At Hong Kong park’s northernmost tip is the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware. Built in 1846 as the home of the commander of the British forces, it is the oldest colonial building in Hong Kong still standing in its original spot. The museum, a branch of the Hong Kong Museum of Art, houses a collection of antique Chinese tea ware.
  • Honestly, a bit disappointing for someone who does pottery. There are some nice pieces but most are simply remarkable in that they have survived this long, not for any intrinsic interestingness. Maybe it will be better when they reopen the other half.
  • Nice exhibitions with videos shown along to illustrate various tea brewing techniques.
