Quality Teaware Store in HK?

by Slop » Sep 13th 18 6:48 am

Hiya - I'm going to Hong Kong sometime this December and intend on purchasing my first quality set of teaware - a cast iron/yixing teapot being my main target. Do you lads have any suggestion as to where I should go to find said teaware?

Difficult, depends much on your knowledge. As anywhere the market is flooded with fakes and over prized and sometimes down-right toxic stuff. I would check the tradtional tea houses like Fok Ming Tong for starters.

Cast iron, better in Japan.

Taipei is just across the channel.

37+ flights per day, 1h 50m duration

I'd urge you to buy in there what you are after (including cast iron pots).

Good luck.

Thanks for the replies! I'm afraid I can't visit Taiwan as consequence of my very tight schedule and strict work periods. Though I've recently just gotten into Gong Fu brewing and intend on continuing my practice of it. Is the Gong Fu teaware marlet just as flooded with fakes and ludicrous prices as well? I've heard praises about LockCha teahouse and several others - are these safe bets?
