Traditional Tea Restaurants
Traditional tea restaurants are built with simple and cheap decoration, and are found mostly in old estates. These are the places for the neighbors to commune as a morning routine. Elders meet here and indulge in activities like chatting and reading newspapers.
Contrary to elders, most young have their tea in modern-style restaurants. However, New Territories has swimmed against the tide. Here, one can find the old and the young under the roof of a conventional tea spot.
Flavours of Tea
Tea in Hongkong comes in different flavours. Some are pungent, some sweet, some bitter. Every variety has some variance in flavour. Different kinds of tea-leaves have various smells and flavours.
The Hong Kongers like to have their tea in clay pots. Smell of the tea gets mixed with the pot and the fragrance becomes much more appealing.
