Fantastic! Our teamaster taught us the ins and outs of brewing different types of Chinese teas and added to our overall enjoyment/knowledge of teas.

A little confusing when we arrived at the address provided for the Ming Cha Tea Shop in Taikoo, this is an industrial area and the building seems to be a warehouse with delivery trucks coming and going. A very helpful security guard could see our dilemma and escorts us to a tiny lift and said "12th floor, 12th floor".
Exiting the wobbly little lift we found ourselves in a small corridor with doors either side and a door at the end, a tiny sign revealed this is place we are to enjoy our private Chinese tea tasting with a Tea Master. The door opened and we met "Tomoko Ota" a diminutive Japanese woman who we discovered had been brought up in the Japanese tea district, 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.

For those who enjoy green tea this tour is a great way to pass a few hours in the afternoon, I don't like green tea as much as my wife but the information provided by our very knowledgeable Tea Master was facinating and no one could fail to be impressed at the sight of the small ball of Jasmine Blossom tea opening out into a colourful flower about four inches across when placed in hot water.

The Tea factory is easy to find by MTR from Central to Kai Koo MTR station, the factory is oposite the exit.

Were I a green tea lover I would give this 5 stars
