Luk Yu Tea House

Last updated by iris at 2014/5/6

Luk Yu Tea House, first opened in 1933, is said to be the first teahouse in Hong Kong. Many celebrities were customers of the teahouse, including English former Prime Minister Thatcherite and American former Secretary of State Kissinger and every Hong Kong governors. Simple but elegant, the inside decoration of the teahouse was of the style of late Qing dynasty, like the arrangements of Formosa red cypress and bronze spit box, and things have been preserved as they were. In white upper garment, black trousers and cloth shoes, the waitress and waiters pour the tea for you with a hand towel on the shoulder, which makes you feel as if you were in the old time.

The tea desserts in the house are very delicate, even the common shrimp dumpling, Shao-mai, sesame ball are different from others, neither too oily nor to too greasy with thin skin and much stuffing, not to say the special egg tart and lotus-seed-paste rice dumplings wrapped in leaves. Also, there are desserts that you can’t find at other places, such as chicken ball in big bun, rice with shrimps wrapped in lotus leave, fish balls with ham and so on. What’s more, another specialty of Luk Yu Tea House is the pork lung soup which is stewed with pork lung and dozens of ingredients like salty Chinese cabbage, red jujube, apricot and so on. You have to be early if you want to drink tea because most desserts have been sold out at 2:00 in the afternoon.
