The number of shops that showcase the immense variety of tea is simply astounding ! It is very difficult to make a choice if you are a tea aficionado and the length of the tea street does not register on you or your weary feet...More

This place is known to fewer foreigners unless they have been in Beijing for a while. You'd be hard pressed to find camera stores in regular Malls, unlike in other countries. This is in part because they are either hidden here, or in Wukesong.

Maliandao Tea Street I haven't found anywhere else in China where I can buy anything I need to drink tea, besides tea. Before going to Maliandao Tea Street, we visited the Hangzhou area (Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China), as well as the Pu'er, Yunnan area, looking for...More

Fabulous tea tasting experience. Highly recommend hiring a guide to assist you in negotiating. They can assist you with the tea tasting culture and treasures. If you love tea, definitely a must!

A huge variety of tea. But you should be familiar of what you are looking for. Otherwise you'll end up with a regular grass for a high price. Download a translator to communicate.

We spent a lovely afternoon in the Teajoy Market! We did not stop in any of the small shops on the street, but the market has plenty to take up a couple hours. Directions were very confusing, many sites have different ways of getting there...More

If you drink tea, then you will enjoy roaming the tea rooms, sampling the tea and receiving a show! Any tea you buy is sealed to take home overseas. Quite the experience if you are after a bit of culture.

Great variety of shops all selling tea but enough variety to make a visit worth while. Managed to overload on tea as there is only so much tea that you can drink in one afternoon

where to buy chinese tea (21 Replies)
Have read about Tea Street and Maliandao Tea Street. Are they one and the same thing ? How far are they from Wangfujing ? I would like to buy some chinese tea but would not know the difference between good or bad tea or what is a good price. Is there a shop that is reliable and require minimal bargaining ? Thanks very much.

If you are not an expert yourself, you basically need a shop where they speak English. I think that will limit your choice a lot. Also it would then be a touristic shop, and you certainly have to bargain a lot.

How to get to Maliandao Tea street by public transport? (1 Replies)
Is it worth it or better to take a taxi? We will be staying in a Hutong by the Bell and Drum Towers. Thank you, P

Maliandao is not really close to any subway station. Beijing West Rail station + 1.5 km walk. Bus is too convoluted and difficult to explain to a non-Chinese speaker/reader. Suggest you take a taxi.
