Hong Kong has a long-established South Asian community, with many Indian officers serving as police and prison officers back since the 19th century. The Sikh prayer room, Indian mess and prison curry meals all speak to Tai Kwun’s multicultural past.
This workshop focuses on one aspect that ties Indian and Chinese populations together – tea. Participants will learn about the cultural history of both Tai Kwun and masala chai, design their wooden spice box with traditional henna patterns, and pack spices to make their own chai at home.
Tai Kwun and WEDO GLOBAL have trained ethnic minority youth to deliver these workshops. Join the Cultural Ambassadors to discover the multicultural stories of Tai Kwun and Central!
