Sugar cane juice and five flower tea on Johnston Road

Situated between two property agents at the Southorn playground government building, a little shoplot plies its trade in simple Chinese herbal teas and the better known turtle herbal jelly.

Their specialty is sugar cane and the fresh sugar cane juice is absolutely delicious. I buy them in bottles. Refreshingly sweet, cold and thirst quenching. It’s a wonderful summer drink.

 

delicious five flower tea
 
In the wintertime, they can warm up any tea you want. Today we had the five flowers tea (五花茶) which was so good we had two cups of it.

 

Menu & price list
 
They were promoting a special sugarcane water chestnut dessert for Chinese New Year. 120 HKD a pack. I plan on giving it a try. They’re accepting orders already, usually for collection the same day.

If you need to rebalance your yin yang energy levels in Wan Chai, this little tea shop is a good stop. At least they have two or three small tables for you to sit and enjoy your drink… A luxury that most of these herbal tea shops cannot provide.
