Great place for tea lovers! Don't go to store 2133, they look to cheat you..

Amazing place! You can stroll through 150 small tea shops with a huge variety of teas, and you can try all of them :)! My advice: find a tea that you like before coming here, try a few varieties to know how good stuff tastes like. Store 2133 is one of those shops that tries to sell you overpriced stuff... More

Old tea centers like this are slowly fading out of Chinese culture...but they are the best places to learn about tea and teaware from ALL over China. Tianshan has floors upon floors of great tea, tea families and even some English-speaking shop owners. A must visit if you are a Chinese tea lover.

This is a nice place to visit when in the area. The tea selection is quite wide and they sell tons of tea utentensils. We went to the store on 2133 store... It was just ok. The lady we had did not speak EN. I have many tea ceremonies in business situations and this was for sure not ine if... More

I went to Tianshan Tea City (a building dedicated to tea vendors as well as vendors selling all equipment to make and enjoy tea) to purchase Chinese tea. I am not a tea connoisseur (personally prefer coffee), but wanted to immerse myself in Chinese culture through consuming tea. I read a trip-advisor review about Sara, Room 2133 (located on second...

I have been here twice before at another tea store, one recommended by a Chinese friend. However, on this trip I decided to be adventurous and try shop 2133. What a great choice! The best teas , prices and customer service in the entire place! Will be back at this shop and of course at this great and unique place... More

I found Tea in China to be quite complex and confusing as a foreigner. I lived in Shanghai for 2 years and found a tea shop that speaks great english and is very knowable. Ask for Sara as she is knowledge but more imortanly very patient. If you ask, she explain the differences and help guide you to new teas... More

If you are a Tea Lover or just willing to learn about the different teas, this is the right place to go. I had very limited time (came past 7 pm) so no chance to shop around except a small part of the 1st floor. Caution is that few shops speak english but those that i went in tried the... More

We visited Tianshan Tea Market yesterday and had a wonderful time. Store owners will invite you inside to sample their teas (the two shops we sampled from did not pressure us to buy at all. They encouraged us to continue trying and had no problems when we left). It is a bit far from the city but we had a... More

I was quite surprised when I arrived there. It is not a very turistic place, but very traditional chinese place, which i really appreceated. At the begining i was feelinga bit lost since there are so many nice shops and so many variaties of teas, that it is difficult to choose, but after a good look it is easy to... More

A great place to visit. We ventured in looking for cheap tea sets and tea. We were expecting the typical tourist trap but were surprised to find great shop owners who invited you in to sample their tea and teach about what makes each tea special. Tea sets are reasonable priced, carrying both porcelain and iron sets. We saw the... More
