What to expect
Meet your guide and small group in central Shanghai, and stroll along Huaihai Road, a popular shopping and food haunt. As you walk, hear about Shanghai’s love of tea and tea drinking rituals, and learn about the different tea varieties that hail from various regions of China. For starters, visit two pastry shops to sample Chinese mooncakes. These delicious pastry-coated cakes feature savory or sweet fillings and are usually circular to symbolize family reunions. Sample some varieties and learn how the cakes are usually served with tea, and most popular during China’s Mid-Autumn Festival. Next, head inside a tea house and enjoy a classic tea ceremony as you learn about China’s historical tea culture and how it rose to favor in the west during the 1800s. Savor varieties such as pu-erh, ginseng oolong, and jasmine and black tea from Fujian, and learn about the roles of differently sized cups and temperatures of water used for different varieties. Finally, visit a Cantonese dessert restaurant to taste some traditional sweets. Sample cold treats such as milk pudding with purple sticky rice, jellied mousse cake, papaya, and scrumptious mango purée and almond tofu. Your tour then ends in the area when your guide departs.

One of our best tours!
Jul 2019
We tried so many foods, bubble teas, new pastries, and a variety of teas in many different locations. Wish we did this tour first so that we could go to these places again and again. Jim was a great tour guide. He kept us excited and filled us with alot of wonderful tasting foods!

My guide told me that this tour doesn't get much attention which is a shame because it was great! Visited several bakeries, My Tea Pink for a yummy bobo drink made with tea, walked around the Xintiandi area and also thru the old neighborhoods. In the old neighborhood stopped by a small traditional tea shop where I learned all about the various kinds of tea, how tea is fast becoming obsolete. Would definitely recommend this tour you will love it!

The highlight was the tea tasting session with everything from flowers and fruit, through to traditional, aged and violet teas. A lovely gentle and atmospheric experience and such an interesting journey for the palette!

A great way to spend an afternoon
Dec 2017 • Solo
I had an excellent time with this tour and I would gladly recommend it to anyone looking for something to do that's a little off the beaten path. The meeting place is by one of the more popular metro stations so finding it was no problem, even for someone with little understanding of Chinese. The first thing Jim asked was whether I had any dietary concerns and then we were on our way. We went to several places and tried several different kinds of desserts, and finished up with a traditional tea session. Jim was very knowledgeable about the foods and the places we were visiting, as well as the city in general. He was willing to answer any questions that I had, even the silly ones and we ended up having some very interesting discussions. Definitely the best part for me was the tea shop, it felt so quiet and relaxed compared to the bustle going on just a few streets away. If you're planning a trip to Shanghai and you have a few hours to spare, I can definitely recommend this tour, especially if you've seen some of the bigger tourist areas and are looking for a break from all that craziness. I'll definitely book another tour with this company the next time I end up in Shanghai!

Brilliant tour! :)

This was an excellent tour which I would highly recommend!
Jim, our tour guide, was really friendly, fun and knowledgeable about local tea and desserts, and also Chinese culture. He provided us with lots of information but also took the time to ask us questions.
We sampled some very delicious tea and cakes, I am vegetarian and can be quite a fussy eater at times but I honestly enjoyed everything that was offered and was very full after the tour! Jim asked us at the beginning of the tour if we had any dietary needs, thus making sure he knew about what we could eat and not eat.
The places that we went to on the tour were really nice and the staff who worked there were really friendly and interested in us. I particularly liked that Jim took us places that we, as visitors to Shanghai, would never be able to find on our own. Now that we know about these bakeries etc, we will be sure to visit again.
Visiting the traditional tea house was my personal highlight of the tour, it was very relaxing to sit and chat and to sample nice teas! The lady that worked there did not speak any English, however was very friendly and welcoming. I would love to visit her again.
We had some really interesting discussions with Jim and he was able to give us lots of advice in regards to living in China, as we are non-Chinese and have recently moved here.
I would 100% recommend this tour. We are keen to book more tours led by the Shanghai Foodie in the future!
