Suddenly no queues or noise. When you step in everything changes. Plenty of space, quiet and a nice atmosphere - until the waiter trues to convince you the buy the most expensive tea. it is expensive at 60 - 135 juan for a pot of tea, but at least you get quaileggs and other treats with it.

Although not cheap I really liked having tea in this place, one of my favorite activities in Shanghai. They serve a lot of different things to eat with the tea, the white sweets that I don't recall the name are the best.

Aim for a window view, then sit & watch the crowds below & the extraordinary tea flowers unfold before your eyes. Chinese magic.

The tea House just located outside of the Yu Garden along the zigzag bridge. I just went in but did not have any drink. They offer discount for people that can show their Yu Garden ticket.

Managed to snag a table near a window on the second floor. Spent a relaxing couple of hours enjoying the views, sampling teas and nibbling small snacks like quails eggs and marinated tofu. Not cheap, but definitely a lovely experience.

I loved having my tea experience here. After looking through the lovely gardens it was wonderful to sit here with my family and select a few different teas. The teas came out with eggs and unusual snacks that I wouldn't normally associate with tea but when in China it had to be done. Its a must!

In the bustling Yu Garden area rests this lovely tea house. A nicely appointed building with a good view of the crowds below, it became an oasis for us. The tea and associated bags of snacks were very good and we loved the tradition of it all. It is not cheap, but the tea was great and the snacks were... More

We were taken to the Huxinting Teahouse for tea and dumpling soup by our Chinese hosts. When we arrived there was a long long line. Our host went up to the hostess and they chatted and then we were seated right away. Our host ordered everything for us and we just enjoyed the view and the food and tea. Great... More

It was a cold day, it was nice to sit up stairs watching the world go by while sipping tea. For a first timer I thoroughly would recommend it.

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Shanghai’s original walls live on in the curve of the streets that serve as the border to the old city. An aerial view shows a clear circular outline and parts of the original wall are preserved as monuments to the ancient past. The main tourist attraction of Yuyuan (which means Yu garden, though it is often redundantly referred to as Yuyuan Garden) draws hordes of tourists every day, but wandering the streets around the complex reveals more exciting attractions such as food and antique markets. There are also streets lined with shops peddling everyday wares such as Chinese dining ware and craft notions that can be even more enticing to visitors uninterested in the usual tourist fare.
