8 Shipyard Lane, Taikoo | 12/F Wah Ha Factory Building, Hong Kong, China
I am a local and went there with my friends who is a foreigner. I recommend this if you want to get some handcrafted tea. As a local, we dont get the traditional ones from this kind of teahouse.
Pros: nice handcrafted tea.
Expected this to be routine with my kids aged 6-13 .... all of them rated it in their top three experiences in Hong Kong and all rushed out to buy tea sets to take home. Well worth doing. Host was very friendly and accommodating to...More

This was positively one of the best experiences I had in Hong Kong with my friend Ashley. She arrived the morning of and I googled best tea house in HK and this place showed up and we thought we would give it a shot!
It was a pleasant 1.5 hour session. Enjoyable tasting with in-depth information on some different kind of tea leaves, what makes the character of the tea, how to drink it, what tea pot/cup to use etc. Teacher was friendly:)
It was a great experience...professionally and entertaining. You learn a lot about tea from the Southern Chinese Provinces.
Vivian is a great person.
It was a corporate event but we went as well several times with the family.
We really recommend it!
I was so impressed after my first visit with a friend that I decided to bring my other half to MingCha as a Valentine's Day gift.
Inside the typical warehouse building is an oasis built for discovering the world of tea. The room is decked...More

Tea Tasting will be guided by MingCha Ambassadors and each visitor will choose one tea from our tea selection. Our ambassador will brew the tea in multiple times for you to let you understand the aroma and taste profile of the tea; and she will also share interesting stories of the tea and brewing tips with you. You can enjoy tea in a relaxed and casual way.
Our tea tasting workshop is designed for those who would like to have an overview of tea including the history, origins, botany, classification, production processes. Guided by our Tea Master, 4-5 kinds of tea will be covered and let you take a closer look at each tea using our senses-opening approach; plus you will have a chance to brew yourself and others tea. You will be able to find the right teas for yourself.
Hope you find the above information useful. Look forward to meeting you at our tea house soon.
