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.

What can be nicer than sipping tea in the very cosy chinese tea house in a cold day? The tea selection is superb but can be rather confusing for 1st timer (especially when the waiter does not promote the tea very well, but push for the highest price). We settled for a premium tea house special and Jasmine which is... More

If you like Chinese tea, or just want to try some new tea products, this is a good place to go. Situated in the Yuyuan shopping mall adjoining the Yuyuan traditional garden, it is housed in a pavilion rising out of a lotus pond. The teas are rather pricey, but they come with a number of local nibbles. In the... More

The day we went to the Yu Gardens, particularly the zig zag bridge was overcrowded and we simply decided to move in this old building. It is touristic, yes, but I cannot say that it was a tourist trap. You can just enter and wander around to feel the old time atmosphere or you can even have a pot of... More

Tea House is situated in the gorgeous Yuan Gardens in Shanghai Old town. Worth the visit, stunning architecture and beautiful shops to buy souvenirs, you need to bargain though.
