Meanwhile, time for a late lunch in Hong Kong Park, at the Lok Cha Tea House. 

  

A cup infused yellow tea, slightly smokey on the first brew then smoother from the second cup onwards. Accompanied by seasonal steamed vegetable dumplings and these cute little sweet, black sesame  mini dumplings served in cold jasmine tea. Delicious. 

Lock Cha Tea House is a haven of peace inside the already peaceful Hong Kong park at Admiralty. A spacious tearoom serving Chinese and some Taiwanese teas (green, yellow, oolong – which the English menu calls “greenish tea”, red and pu-erh) with a decent selection of vegetarian dim sum and other all veggie dishes. Tea demonstration at a small extra charge. 

Lok Cha also sells tea and tea ware, and is located right next to the wonderful Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware. Visiting the museum then taking a long tea break at Lok Cha is a perfect way to spend a tea-themed afternoon.

A cup of gold

Goodness, these tips are made for splurging! Coated in 24K gold that infuses into the brew. Pret-tea fancy. I wonder if my tea obsession will ever lead me to cough up the $480 for 50g. Never say never I say.

See TWG’s Yellow Gold Tea Buds here. 

TWG is my favourite brand for high end Indian black teas, like their first flush Darjeelings in April/May. The exquisite tea rooms are a close copy of Mariage Frères but their teas are superior in my view.
