Chinese Tea Leaves Shop - Wood Art Craft Museum, Ipoh

After our lunch at Restoran Kar Heng (in yesterday's post), we drove to Ipoh old town to visit a wood art craft museum at Lorong Bijeh Timah (facing the Jalan Sultan Iskandar bridge). If you are coming from Ipoh new town to the old town, you will be able to see it on your right hand side as you cross the bridge.
This is the first shop (corner) selling Chinese tea leaves. It is interconnected to the second shop which is the wood art craft shop.
On both sides of the tea shop are two water features with fishes in them.
Dried tea leaves on display at the entrance of the shop.
The names of the different types of tea leaves are all written in Mandarin.
Beautiful antique earthenware jars.
Different types of Chinese tea leaves in small earthenware jars on the table.
This antique wooden staircase leads to the 1st floor and from there, you can cross over to the next shop.
Table made from tree trunk.
Chairs made from wood.
Wooden stools.
This looks like a piece of watermelon.
Wood designed by nature.
Wooden stools.
Wooden table and chairs.
Chairs
Ceiling fans
Antique ceramic wares in wooden meat safes.
A wooden bench that looks like an "alien".
Will continue with more photos from this museum in a later post.

The lofty sun and moon began to fade,
obscured by brilliance from your arrows and
the flashing of your glittering spear.

    1. Not many people know of this latest attraction. Maybe it was not meant for sitting.

    1. The tea leaves are for sale but we didn't buy any because we seldom drink tea.

  7. Like the tea leaves, it's good to see them. Have been to a tea plantation in Queensland and that too was interesting.
    The wood, the table is wonderful along with all those things really.
