Located up the hill from Hollywood Road in the trendy area of Sheung Wan – what some call PoHo – the surroundings of hipster tea cafe Teakha is quite relaxed.

But the food offerings here are legit, worth the trek and perhaps worth the uncomfortable seating too!
Authentic low sugar Thai milk tea (HK$38)
I’ve had lots of trouble finding authentic Thai milk tea outside of Bangkok but this one is spot on the real deal.

Just gotta live with the fact that it’s kind of overpriced.
Best green tea cheesecake in Hong Kong (HK$42)
I love all things matcha and green tea! This must be the best green tea cheesecake I’ve had to date – the texture is quite smooth and soft, while the crust retains a crunch. There’s a good balance between cheese and matcha taste, though I’d personally prefer a more over powering matcha taste!
