  • 這是香港唯一一間博物館介紹茶具, 其建築物很有英國殖民地色彩。 對於不喜好荼具的遊客來說也可以來逛逛,會長知識的。 
  • If you love tea then you'll love this museum. They have the full history of tea here explained through exhibits of ancient tea paraphernalia. There are some instructional videos to watch as well. I liked the one on the proper way to prepare oolong tea.
  • 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.
  • With renovations happening only half the building is open. Most of the displayed artifacts are recent 19th and 20th century pieces. I am looking forward to visiting after the refurbishment
  • I enjoyed learning the history about tea although I am not a connoisseur. Interesting exhibits.
  • It was my first time to visit a tea ware museum. This museum has so many tea ware collection from long time ago. I learnt a lot here. The museum consists of several rooms. There is also a video room to show you how to make tea ware.
