Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware
Built in 1846, Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware is the oldest remaining British Colonial building in Hong Kong. Formerly the residence of the Commander of the British Forces in Hong Kong, today it features exhibitions, demonstrations, and lectures on tea, tea culture, and the history of tea in China.
 
The Basics
The 2-story Flagstaff House was built in the Greek Revival style, and features a simple façade, colonnaded verandas, and wooden monsoon shutters. The museum’s extensive collection contains more than 600 pieces of fine tea ware. There are also exhibits on the history of tea, different types of tea, and the benefits of tea. The museum holds regular demonstrations and lectures on the importance of tea culture in China and Hong Kong. The K. S. Lo Gallery, located in a building nearby, showcases rare Chinese ceramics and seals from the Ming and Qing dynasties. An on-site teahouse allows visitors to try and purchase different teas.
 
Flagstaff House can be visited independently. Or visit as part of a historical walking tour that stops at other points of historical significance, including Possession Point, the Legislative Council building, and the Court of Final Appeal Building.
