「The historic symbol of black tea」The headquarters of The Bund Tea Company is located in this historic building built by the black tea exporter, Gibb, Livingston & Co.


The iron cast of a sailboat hangs near the front gate.
It is a symbol of the company's prosperous future as
well as a tribute to its illustrious past. Passing through
this hundred-year-old gate, you will reach the entrance
of the Tea Shop at the end of the hallway.


Everything in this high-ceilinged room, from the crystal
chandeliers, semi-circular windows, to the wealth of
different tea containers on the black sandalwood front
desk and display shelf, evokes history and elegance.
You can select and enjoy superior black tea and many
other kinds of Chinese teas here.

Opening hours: 09:00〜20:00
Our teas also make for exquisite gifts.


Passing through the arched door of the Tea Shop, you step
into the Tea Salon. Being seated, you feel the graceful and
relaxing atmosphere. The teacup and saucer in front of you
were made using retro decoration and geometric patterns
from the 1920's and 30's, adorned with a white-gold edge
more display their artistic beauty. You will surely enjoy your
time in this smoke-free Tea Salon.
