Established in downtown Toronto in the 1970s, Luk Yu Tea is a hidden gem within Toronto’s historical downtown Chinatown. When Market Village opened in 1990 at Kennedy and Steeles, we were one of the first stores to welcome our tea connoisseurs from the north-Toronto, and Scarborough Chinese communities. We have been in the Market Village Shopping Centre since then and established a strong bonding with tea connoisseurs within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and beyond. Our reputation for serving premium traditional-cured teas have spread far and wide. Tea connoisseurs from other Canadian provinces and from different states in the USA make their annual pilgrimage to our shop to stock up their tea supply.

The humble beginning:
第一代的耕耘 第一代的耕耘

An enclave in Toronto Chinatown Huron Street served as the humble establishment to be known as Luk Yu Tea and Artistry Bonsai Co-op. Mr. Wong a restauranteur, and his wife Amy set up a traditional tea retail store to satisfy the growing needs of the expanding Chinese community in Toronto. As 1970’s was the harbinger of a fast growing Chinese immigrants influx into the city of Toronto, the 1990's experienced the rapid growth of the Chinese community stretched into Richmond Hill and Scarborough areas. Madam Amy Choi foresaw the demographic undercurrent and Luk Yu Tea is one of the first specialty store in the Market Village Shopping Centre to serve the needs of the tea connoisseurs in the new flourishing communities.

Family tradition carried onto the 21st century:
第二代的持守  第二代的持守

Under the auspicious supervision of Madam Amy Choi, the second generation shouldered the responsibilities in 2002. Common among Chinese culture, filial piety, honesty and tradition are the highly honoured virtues in the success of a family business. The second generation entrepreneurs were trained and groomed to follow the foot-step of the matriarch and the result can be experienced by all tea connoisseurs who dropped by for a chat, for a tea tasting, and eventually shopping for their favourite tea selection. Uncluttered displays of selective high grade tea are arranged in the same place on the same shelf to mark the shop's history. 

時光荏苒, 第二代接班人贏得長輩的稱許 肩負秉承陸羽茶莊的誠諾 以維繫中華歷史悠久的茶文化為已任。

Decades ago, customers have to walk down the concrete steps on Huron Street to get to Luk Yu Tea Shop which was located below the street level. Today, tea connoisseurs have to ride an escalator up to reach Luk Yu Tea Shop located on the second floor of Market Village Shopping Centre.
