Website
Improve this listing
Ranked #14 of 1,510 Restaurants in Chongqing
Cuisines: Café, Tea Room
Good for: Outdoor seating, Scenic view
Description: A scenic tea cafe on the 10th floor of the iconic Hongya Cave building just a few minutes walk from the heart of the Jiefangbei central business district (CBD). Take the escalator DOWN from the "city balcony" on the top of Hongya Cave alongside Cangbai Road. Epic views on a clear day where you can see the Yangtze and Jiabin Rivers "swirl".Recommended items: "Nai Bei" (seasonal), Matcha Mojito, Mango Lemon Iced Tea.Note: The Hongya Cave building has 11 floors but is built on the side of a cliff so the 1st floor on Cang Bai Road coming from Jiefangbei is the 11th floor of the building!

Great tea-room with wonderful and expensive tea. Spacious and modern room with nice river view (if you can see it through the smog) and nice chill-out music. We bought some tea, but again: quite expensive. Very relaxing and good service. Would go again (we did, twice).

Nice selection of teas and or fancied up tea drinks. Beautiful view of the jouling (sp) river. If you want to relax in Chongqing...this is the place to do it

A good place to relax after a long walk. The place is pretty. I tried a drink that is recommended by the staff, a red tea with mango flavour or something around that. However, i don't really like it. My husband ordered the teapuccino and that's fantastic. ;)

Stumbled on Nenlu Tea while exploring the Hongya Dong. We were thirsty and needed to sit and kill some time before reuniting with our tour group. Didn't want to leave! I had an iced green tea drink that sadly wasn't bottomless and my wife had a tea drink with little berry like items that popped in her mouth. Can't remember... More

If you visit Hongya Dong, this is a nice place for a cup of tea. It is on 10th floor near the escalators (across from Costa Coffee). The Hongya Dong mall is pretty good, with coffee/beer/fastfood offerings and a good view of the river.
