Chongqing to Tea Mountain Bamboo Sea

Chongqing to Tea Mountain Bamboo Sea

We are planning a trip at the end of September to Chongqing. Is it worth it to go to Tea Mountain Bamboo Sea? It looks breathtaking and we are big tea drinkers. I speak extremely limited Mandarin and have no idea how to get an English speaking guide. I can't seem to find much information on the area so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Any advice on great tea places in Chongqing would be helpful as well. Thank you!

Have been to Tea Mountain Bamboo Sea before, it is really nice place especially the very good tea(YongchuanXiuYa) in that area. Actually there are two tea market in Chongqing selling different tea from all over China. Please contact yinjun_518@163.com for detailed info.

you'll get tea rooms at most 4 & 5 star hotels, usually at the forecourt of their restaurants. or you'll find tea rooms even at some of the larger supermarkets. at either, look for the word 茶 pronounced as "cha" which means tea

just to be sure, you are looking at Chinese tea not blends like English Breakfast or Chamomile

unless you are with a local/guide, i dont suggest going to one of the stand-alone tea rooms or tea houses. many often have mahjong to accompany the tea drinking. will be fun to see but will be safer to speak passable Mandarin to correctly get what you are looking for
