MingCha is a Premium brand of handcrafted Chinese Tea of authentic origins. Run by artist & designer-turned enterprenuer Vivian Mak, MingCha has won numerous awards including the Champion Awards in the Oolong category in 2011 Hong Kong International Tea Fair and Trends and Innovation Awards in 2002. MingCha teas were also included in the Academy Awards' (The Oscars) official gift basket in 2003. Nevertheless, it is the taste that MingCha teas stand out from the crowd and wins reputation and the loyalty of people around the globe.

We visited Ming Cha Tea House with another couple. Be sure to get detail directions before you leave as an address alone will not get you there. It is in a type of warehouse area, but do not be concerned as you are going to a hidden gem in Hong Kong. Once there you will be treated to a small... More

An amazing insight into tea, tea blends and the correct making of a cup of tea. Our parents, grand parents and great grand parents have been doing it wrong forever lol. Follow directions on their website to the letter to find the tea house.

This was a delightful tasting! We were entertained and educated on the nuances of various types of tea.These ladies are the Master Sommeliers of Tea! I had no idea there was so much to learn and the learning process could be so much fun. MingCha is a hidden treasure and should be on the "A List" of things to do... More

We found MingCha on the travel website, Inspirock and felt like it would be a fun adventure! It was a nice break from sight-seeing and shopping. It turned out to be a the perfect way to spend a few hours and to get away from the busy streets of Hong Kong! Veronica was our instructor and was so well informed... More

My girlfriend and I were traveling for only a couple of days in HK earlier this month, and wanted to partake in some Chinese tea. We enjoy formal tea as well as casual, and weren't quite sure what we would find at MingCha, but the reviews really intrigued us. We decided to swing by one afternoon/evening after a long day...

很想詳細講述工作坊的內容,最後還是強烈推介大家親身體驗茶藝的樂趣,如何能夠用五官去享受中國茶,過程好像經歷了一種藝術欣賞的旅程。創辦人Vivian生動有趣地講解茶的故事,打從心底裡推廣中國茶。特別是Tea Pairing Workshop能夠讓你感受食物與茶的關係,VIVIAN的帶動下,由淺為深的交流表達茶配的感覺(還可以寫筆記);從來沒想過中國茶能以如此節奏品嚐,作為中國人,今次的學習改變了我對茶葉的一般印象,更提高了對茶的要求,真正感受中國茶的嶄新沖擊 。 推介Tea X Ham and Tea X French Pastries;物有所值!茶的品質非常高! 學懂感恩經營者的心思!推薦必然到此一「學」的好地方! I like to tell you in detail the whole contents of the Tea Pairing Workshop.... Seriously, i prefer to enjoy and experience the fun of tea by yourself. Say how to use five senses to enjoy Chinese tea, it seems like a journey to appreciate the arts... More

We had prebooked and received a confirmation, but they were totally surprised when we marched in. Tea master was not at house so a nice lady with average english... More

Our instructor was Tomoko, she was an excellent and informative guide to Chinese tea. She took us through a variety of teas, how they are made, where they are from, how to brew and drink, along with the rituals, equipment used and intricacies of Chinese tea drinking. I went with my girlfriend and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, the tea tasted... More
