Tea Hub

It’s a pleasant surprise to find this charming spot amid the Sham Shui Po / Cheung Sha Wan bustle. It was opened by a lady who was a former investment banker and is passionate about drinking tea. From a range of herbal tea to milk tea and from Japanese-style to Chinese-style, you can find them all there. Combined with tea-inspired food (noodles in cold tea soup, anyone?), Tea Hub offers a fully immersive tea experience.
