I wanted to taste different teas from China. Mingcha was recommended. Finding it is a little daunting because the address is in a warehousing area. March on. You must enter through the warehouse loading area to an elevator. Take the elevator to the floor listed and ring the bell for MingCha. I asked to sample teas and they were very... More

Had a wonderful time with Tomoko. Her knowledge of tea was inspiring. I personally drink a lot of and source green tea from a variety of places, however the oolong Phoenix osmanthus is hands down the best tea I have ever tasted. If your a beginner to the world of tea this class would be amazing, but Tomoko adapts herself... More

We visited here on the last day of our trip. It's a little tricky to find it and we ended up in a warehouse building next door. Don't be deceived by its location. The staff were really accommodating and informative. We tried two teas and bought a small tube of the lovely jasmine flower tea. The total was £30. It's... More

Rang earlier in the day to check that it is open... A lovely lady picked up the phone and gave me detailed instructions on how to get there. When we arrived we were warmly invited for tea tasting. We tried a variety of tea and they were just gorgeous! Thank you!

We visited Ming Cha Tea House with another couple. Be sure to get detail directions before you leave as an address alone will not get you there. It is in a type of warehouse area, but do not be concerned as you are going to a hidden gem in Hong Kong. Once there you will be treated to a small... More

An amazing insight into tea, tea blends and the correct making of a cup of tea. Our parents, grand parents and great grand parents have been doing it wrong forever lol. Follow directions on their website to the letter to find the tea house.
