Tea tasting is a must do if you’re visiting Hong Kong.
We had a new addition to the small public group tour last week, Aneurin offered us some free teas at his house! Here we are having a try brewing and mashing the Matcha and enjoying the delicate and subtle flavours of puerrh, oolong with rose and Japanese green tea.
Small group tours run most Saturdays and cost HK $475 per person. If you would like to join too, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or complete a booking form.
