I called at noon to make a reservation for 4:30. No luck, i asked if there were seating for walk-ins, girl over the phone said you can try.  I arrived at 4:15, there were 2 pairs of couples ahead of us. After half an hour, the second pair gave up after knowing the first pair had been waiting for over an hour. Someone had booked a table at 4:45, and they were holding it for 15 minutes. Finally, the first couple sat down at 5pm, but only after the late group showed up right at 5:00 b...

This Matcha Meal is absolutely fantastic! The hot Matcha drinks are of very unique blends, the different concoctions are not sweet, not too milky (it is comforting to know that they only use soy milk in these matcha beverages, the additional tinge of soy adds to the unique taste and also, a relatively healthy touch) and very fragrant. There are chopped chestnuts on the foam of the Matcha Genmaicha tea and adds a twist to the smoothness of the milk tea. Even without drinking, ...

We came here on a Saturday afternoon during CNY.  We were surprised and excited that this place was open and there was no one waiting. When we went in, no one came out to help us or greet us. So we just went to sit down at one of the two people tables. The only waitress there then noticed us and seemed unhappy that we got our own seats. She talked to a lady at the coffee bar, presumably the owner, and motioned in a way which showed that she probably preferred to seat us outside....

As I had some girlfriends visiting from out of town, I arranged a gathering for 4 of us at Sinmei Tea as I was attracted by the matcha desserts here and thought it would be a great hang out spot for us to catch up! I had made a reservation for 3pm on Sunday ahead of time, and when we got there, we had to wait 15-20 minutes for the people sitting at our table to finish up. It was not a big problem except that the elevator area we were waiting in was really hot and stuffy, and this was alr...

Wanna a green afternoon for weekend? Then you must go there, and remember to call for booking first! Yes, Sinmei Tea, located in Sheung Wan (very close to MTR exit) and a typical upper cafe. Signature green tea (Matcha) pastries and drinks are what they should be proud of and the reason go for a visit. Sometimes seated inside to enjoy a relax hiding environment, sometimes faces to Sheung Wan's old buildings while sitting outside; and never get boring to their c...

Sinmei Tea...I learned about this place a few years back on Openrice. So curious that I have to come here to check it out & afterward I just keep on coming again & again. For one, I just can't resist on their matcha dessert & drinks. Also, the small & cozy environment (well...may be not at the busy hour!) But at least people can just chill with no one disturb. I'm really honored to be invited to this friends gathering by Lemon Tea! smile Met a few friends like IVY...

Finally gave Sinmei a visit as I had been looking forward to have a try on the different green tea desserts and drinks. Glad that the delicacies there did not disappoint me! I ordered this green tea mojito ~Of course there wasn't any alcohol content like how mojito usually has, yet it did not taste so good.. a bit weird actually. I'd say it's not a very great combination to blend in green tea into the original mojito as the strong taste of mint does not go so well with green tea. ...

My friend from Australia was in HK, and we decided to check out this place after reading so many positive reviews about this little green tea galore. Being both lovers of green tea, this sounded the place to be! smile Located very close to Sheung Wan MTR station- within two minutes walk which was really convenient- and sitting on the fifth floor of an easily-recognisable building, it seemed quite a snug fit for probably a maximum of thirty customers at once? We arrive...

Been here a few times early this year and absolutely loved itlol. Unfortunately, my recent visit reflected that the service has deteriorated and this cafe was no longer a decent place for chit chatmad. We came here during lunch hour and were surprised to see that only 2 tables were occupiedshocked. We ordered one Chai Chai (Some kind of Indian tea) to go. 10 minutes went by, and nothing happened.huffy One table ordered three fruit smoothies and the very loud grinding sounds came ...

I love Sheung Wan for a reason. Countless small restaurants & cafes with personality! Lots of hidden gems in this district! Sinmei Tea is one of them. It’s located near to the Sheung Wan MTR exit A2. The cafe is on 5/F of a commercial building. You wouldn’t expect a cafe like this be exist just a few steps across the busy street of Dex Voeux Road. Sinmei Tea was named after the owner of the cafe, who is called Sin Mei. She is really a nice lady who l...
