The Tsui Brothers
“We’re the Tsui Brothers, the authors of Milktealogy. It’s our research project about ‘cha chaan teng’ culture here in Hong Kong. We used to have milk tea when we were in secondary school, and it was love ‘at first taste’. We quickly became huge fans of the special atmosphere inside cha chaan teng and of all the stories they contained. Milkteaology is our way of sharing this culture with the world.
We love Kin Kee’s Cafe for their pineapple bun with fried fish. We were so pleased to find a cha chaan teng in Causeway Bay which had outdoor seating down a quiet alleyway; we love to slowly sip on a cup of milk tea while only a few metres away the street’s alive with all this hustle and bustle. We walk around Causeway Bay all the time, investigating different corners of the neighbourhood, taking photos, chatting with local residents and sketching our observations. As twins, we’ve always enjoyed drawing together on the same piece of paper, completing our sketches sitting side by side.”
