Come on this tea tasting journey to discover the exquisite tastes and diversity of fine Chinese tea.

In this 1.5 hour workshop, you will learn the art and culture of tea making. You will sample 5 exceptional Chinese teas and have a chance to pair the various brews with rose honey toast and Chinese delicatessens. 


Your tea master will first demonstrate the intricate rituals of tea making, a process steeped in tradition. You will then follow along and learn how to brew Chinese tea the traditional way with a gaiwan or ‘lidded bowl’.

After preparing the tea, you will learn how to assess the appearance, aroma, flavour and after-taste of the tea. Smell the dry tea leaves and sip, slurp and swirl the brew on your tongue - open your mind and palate to the distinct qualities and subtleties of Chinese tea.

Throughout the workshop, your tea master will answer these questions:

  • What is Chinese tea?
  • What is the process behind tea production?
  • What are the major types?
  • What do they look and taste like?
  • What are their health benefits?
  • How do you brew the perfect cup of tea? Which utensils are involved? What temperature do you use?
  • How do you choose the right tea for you?


You will leave with a deeper understanding and appreciation for Chinese tea.

What a wonderful experience! we really enjoyed trying all the teas and learning about how they were made (and how to brew tea properly!) well worth the time and money. the place is a little hard to find (in a big warehouse) but lovely once inside the venue.

Sorry I was late to commend of my experience. I really have to say we really enjoy the tea tasting and leant so much skill about tea leaf and brew the prefect cup of tea. The Tea Master is very kind, funny and professional. This is an excellent workshop.

Tomoko is our Tea Master and with a few well chosen questions discovered how scant our knowledge is in selecting, preparing and enjoying tea. The workshop to improve our skills begins.
Tomoko explained and showed us various tea areas, species and picking methods of the delicate tips to produce the varieties we see before us.
Tasting and smelling we quickly develop some preferences and it was time to learn the brewing techniques used to produce the perfect cup. At the end of the workshop and armed with our new found knowledge we ask if it is possible to make a purchase. With Tomoko's guidance we purchase the necessary teas and equipment to make sure our efforts back home in Australia are as close to perfect as tasted today. We really enjoyed this experience and Tomoko's company, and highly recommend it to other travellers.

We learnt plenty of things about tea that we never thought about, and will finally know what we are drinking! A lively experience in the proper format, simple but interesting documentation supports.

This is an excellent workshop. The teacher is very kind and professional. My friend and I experienced a leisure and fruitful day. If you know tea more, you will know more the culture and history.

My boyfriend and I really loved the tea appreciation class. It was a great way to start our weekend, and to celebrate his birthday in Hong Kong. It was fun, educational yet relaxing.
