Due to open at the end of this month in Central’s H Code, Tell Camellia is the latest contemporary cocktail bar to hit the Hong Kong scene. Led by award-winning bartender and industry expert, Sandeep Hathiramani and Gagan Gurung, cocktails will be influenced by the worlds of teas – as suggested by its name which comes from Camellia Sinensis (a species of evergreen shrub which produces the tea plant). Taking guests on a round the world tour, teas will be sourced from everywhere including Kenya, Turkey, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and more, and the talented bar staff will create one of a kind concoctions using the unique flavours of the teas and a range of creative ingredients.
