  • It was founded in 1984 and is located in the Garden of Hong Kong, a two-layer high legal miracle-Tea museum. The Museum of Tea Ware, which is free to visit, occupies a small place and mainly participates in the exhibition: various tea sets from the Tang Dynasty to modern times, tea history, Chinese ceramics and seals. The Museum of Tea Ware, which is not crowded, can appreciate the exhibits.

  • nice museum. informative. wish had more time to try the dim sum.... will come again....
  • Nice little museum in the gardens and free. I whisked through because I was short on time but I could've spent longer. There was general information about tea and tea making and history which was interesting but the displays about tea pot design etc. were a bit specific and not of interest so I skipped over them.
  • Delicious vegetarian dim sum here. Informative museum on tea as well.
  • Fun to visit for tea-heads. #traveltalktea
  • Solid educational materials. Wisdom +2. Made me thirsty.
