My first ever 5 star rating. Quite frankly, I’d live there.
Now, it’s a Yum Cha restaurant and an oriental tea house, so the tea is predominantly Chinese and Japanese, and my taste is predominantly not.
But superb decor, elegant surrounding, impressive cleanliness, thoughtful and tasteful decor, and 8 teapots ready to taste have won me over.
I had dinner at an Indian restaurant, and then just swung into the OTH for a late night cuppa,
I had a KeeMun, which the served in an odd pottery cup with a tea strainer built into one side – you drink form the other side. A bit freaky, but it more or less worked.
Of the teas I tasted the China Jasmine and Lychee was incredible, and a few of the others weren’t at all bad. It’s also the only late night place I’ve found in Melbourne for a cuppa.
I was there 15 minutes ago, I might close up my laptop and go back.
