It’s Tea O’Clock!

Hong Kong

After 150 years of colonization, the significant influence of British customs in Hong Kong culture is almost everywhere in the city. Perhaps one of the most obvious is the tradition of afternoon tea, which credits its origin from a simple request of an English Duchess in the 1800s asking for some snacks before dinner time. Nowadays, there are plenty of whimsical places that feature dainty delights for tea lovers in Hong Kong. Prepare to dress up for the occasion because these places are guaranteed to give you the quintessential afternoon tea experience!
