Admittedly, we nipped into this tea shop just to use the loo, but ended up staying for three hours!

We decided to partake in a tea ceremony and were superbly led by James, whose parents own the shop. It was a wonderful experience and James is a real asset to both his family and the tea house.

He talked us through the traditional ceremony and let us try different types of tea. We learnt all about the teapots and the tea itself and it was fascinating. It was also great to chat to James who was a brilliant host.

I would strongly recommend this to anyone who visits Melaka. Thank you for such a great day!

This places is a lesson in history and a lesson in the art of tea all in one place.

Also a nice resting stop after a hot and sweaty tour in the district. Reasonably enjoyable, though not much else to offer.

This is a must if you are visiting Melaka. The tea ceremony is fascinating and informative, we learned lots not only about tea and the tradition that surround it but also about the area, history, restaurants e.t.c. Pak the proprietor is very friendly and knowledgeable with good English.
After the tea ceremony which by the way was only about £5 we asked if she could show us some sites. She took us and a couple of other visitors on a night tour around the back streets and food outlets that we would not have considered otherwise. This was for us the highlight of our time in Melaka We did not eat there so cant comment on the food

the tea ceremony at the tea house takes at least one hour or more, but it is interesting to chat with the lady, who does the ceremony, to watch her making tea and ask everything you always wanted to know about tea, the way it is fermented and roasted and cultivated etc, interesting!

besides she's a nice lady to talk about anything, she'll give you good information about malaysia and its cultural diversity, which i find very interesting.

if you have an hour or two to spare, go and enjoy the tea ceremony at the tea house! the house itself is beautiful as well to see!
