We came here at an unusual time, (midday) so the teahouse was empty and quiet. After being in the crowd of the Forbidden City we enjoyed the quietness and the traditional atmosphere. The place offers a glance of the tradition and the tea ceremony was...More

This is the most expensive cultural show I booked on my China tour. It's easy to find (and a great vegan restaurant nearby). There's an extensive tea shop to negotiate before going into the 'theatre'. They bring tea, some sunflower seeds and 3 little sweet...More

Nice example of local Beijing folk opera. I have been there several times and I always liked it ... It is a famous stop for local tourists and foreign. You won't like it if you don't understand or respect Chinese culture.

It's a bit expensive for general visit as you have to spend 500 RMB for watching show followed by serving traditional Chinese tea. But if you are looking for classical look. This place is worth for you.

Overpriced Ticket entrance: 180¥ the cheapest and you have to book in advance. Tea was disgusting, snacks consisted only in few candies and sunflower seeds. The show itself was average, although I think some of the acts were not purely traditional Chinese (a magician act),...More

I kid you not! This is in the tea house. I think the pricing is different in the theatre area. We went into the tea house area and luckily saw the price before ordering. Some cups of tea were $1,000 The cheapest is $16 Beware...More
