Flagstaff House, it self a historical treasure that dates back for the 1840s, houses some of Hong Kong’s most prized teaware collection. After the residence of the commander-in-chief of British forces in Hong Kong, Flagstaff Home is really our oldest surviving colonial building. The center collection is Asian teaware donated by the late Dr. K.S. Lo. The museum committed to the main topic of tea tradition in China, its group comprises about 600 items of tea ware including earthenware to porcelain, mainly of Chinese origin, dating in the 7th century to the present day. Nevertheless, just 150 or so pieces are on display at any one time, with exhibits altered 2 or three times per year.
The museum store sells wonderfully crafted teapots as well as teas.
