This is tea-tasting at its best. I dropped in for my second visit this year, to try more varieties of LaoShe’s relaxing tea. This is much more than a place to drink tea. It is loaded with memorabilia, including visits by many world leaders, including...More

This is the most expensive cultural show I booked on my China tour. It's easy to find (and a great vegan restaurant nearby). There's an extensive tea shop to negotiate before going into the 'theatre'. They bring tea, some sunflower seeds and 3 little sweet...More
