wish you were here.

Hong Kong feels like a burning oven these days. My friends and I went to Teakha for something icy to cool down ourselves this afternoon.
Time at Teakha is like being shielded away from the busy side of the town. I like how you can freshen your mind here.

I ordered an iced caramel lemon tea. The lemons were sprinkled with sugar, then toasted to give them a crispy, caramel taste. I also like how it had honey added in it.

Teakha is more than a tea cafe, it’s also a lifestyle concept store that wishes to promote a simple, sustainable and happy lifestyle. DSC_1019
All pastries are freshly baked on site. There are a variety of scones such as ginger, figs, apple & cinnamon, pineapple & honeycomb. DSC_1020


Teakah has their own collection of black tea (1 box for $120 HKD). They also sell sample packs for $20 (HKD) each. DSC_1018




Being in a cafe like this reminds me of the time of my best friend and I going on a cafe tour in Montreal in Spring. Today was one of the many afternoons that I wish my best friend had come back to Hong Kong this summer (okay I’ll stop before I get even more upset, ha).
Here’s a summer playlist (Japan-themed) created by one of my favourite magazines, Kinfolk. You can check it out here.

      Yea I think tea culture is not very popular in Montreal compared to the coffee culture here. Would be great if there are more tea cafes like teakah here in Montreal!
