Exploring tea shops in Central and Sheung Wan

Did you know that it has been a history that a lot of tea shops are concentrated in Central and Sheung Wan? They are usually tea merchants in the 1950s and 1960s where their main activities will be buying and selling teas for generations. The trip will end by having afternoon tea at an old-style dim sum place called Lin Heung.

    Thanks so much Vivian, I have a wonderful time! Your enthusiasm was great and I really learned a lot about tea. I like that we visited many different tea shops, the dim sum was fun and the surprise tea party at the end was a wonderful experience. I look forward to more tea meetups :)

    Recommended tour for tea lovers. Thank you! Good dumpling place for hungry tea bellies. And meeting a cat who loves tea. No wonder when living with such a master.

    Dear all, I think that I cannot join this event as I am a vegetarian and I only now aware that we are going to have dim sum in a Chinese restaurant. So, please excuse my absence and enjoy the event.

    Dear All,
    Just called the dim sum place and found out that they will serve dim sum until 4pm. So we might start visiting some tea shops and have dim sum break and continue our exploration of other tea shops. Hope you are fine with this arrangement.
