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

Have read about Tea Street and Maliandao Tea Street. Are they one and the same thing ? How far are they from Wangfujing ?

Thanks very much.

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
