  • 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.
