The grounds of Flagstaff House form part of Hong Kong Park, an extraordinary verdant sanctuary where you can also find The Edward Youde Aviary, named after Sir Edward Youde, the Governor General of Hong Kong from 1982-1986. The Park is also home to the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre.
Flagstaff House became the home of the Tea Ware Museum in January 1984. Apart from an impressive display of tea pots and tea paraphernalia, the Museum holds regular tea demonstrations, gatherings, lecture programs and exhibitions.
An exhibit from August 2010 to May 2011 called ‘Tea Ware by Hong Kong Potters’ showcased tea art works as part of a competition by local designers and artists.
The prize-winning design by Tsang Cheung-Shing, was called ‘To The Museum of Tea Ware.’
