Everything feels better over a cup of tea. Tea lovers get a sudden spring of energy to deal with any situation after they have had their dose of their favorite drug. “Lan Fong Yuen” is every tea lover’s paradise. It was established in 1952 and has a long history. Initially it started off as a hawker stall. The hawker stall tea houses form an integral part of Hong Kong’s memorabilia.
Lan Fong Yuen is famous not just because of its long history, but also their Hong Kong-style meals, like drinks “Coffee with tea”, “Silk stocking Milk Tea” and “Dry instant noodles”.


Once you visit ”Lan Fong Yuen” you must certainly try their “Silk stocking Milk tea”. It was the first Hong Kong-style milk tea made from tea bags, which gained massive popularity. The milk tea uses the “post-season tea” from Colombo, Sri Lanka and Malaysia’s non-dairy milk. “Silk stocking Milk tea” is really smooth and is one of the favorite drinks of Hong Kong nowadays.


The famous “Silk stocking Milk tea” is made meticulously by repeatedly filtering the boiled tea through tea bags. Most people say that silk stocking milk tea is much more rich in taste than regular milk tea in other regions due to its unique astringent taste and rich flavor. The taste is peculiarly achieved in the “Lan Fong Yuen“!


In addition to milk tea, “Lan Fong Yuen” also caters to traditional Tea Houses’ food, and the shop is full of customers every day! At present, “Lan Fong Yuen” has three branches in Hong Kong, which are located in Tsim Sha Tsui, Sheung Wan and Central. The street stalls in Central are still reserved. Both local people and foreign tourists visit “Lan Fong Yuen” mainly to try their meals! Central’s branch is one of the rare hawker stalls that has withstood the test of time in Hong Kong and is a must visit place.
