Xiang Yuan Ming Cha tea shop
Jan 2020 • Family
There are dozens of shops in Tian Shan Tea City selling tea and tea ware. We stumbled across Xiang Yuan Ming Cha by chance. The sales person Sara is knowledgeable about tea and speaks fluent English. They sell decent tea for every day as well as high end tea for special occasions. Good tea costs money and their prices seem fair to me. I recommend it to those who acquired the taste for Chinese tea.

Shop 1057
Jan 2020 • Solo
I have visited shop 1057. Mrs Mary and her colleagues were very kind and friendly. I spent around 40 minutes trying different kinds of green, white and black tea. Jasmene tea was very awesome.
Mrs Mary could speak English and Japanese very well.
I recommend her shop for everyone to visit.

Feb 2019 • Couples
We have visited this shop on the second of January (2020), exactly 1065 department. The owner of the shop is very pleasant and benevolent. We had about an hour of tea ceremony, while which we tried about 15 different types of tea for any taste. Owner of the shop answered for all our questions accessibly. Than we bought tea for not small amount of money and had small discount and 3 small presents.

Shop 1065 and 1119 - Jia and family
Dec 2019 • Couples
Followed reviews here at TripAdvisor and ended up at shop 1065 (they also own 1119). Jia is not pushy or aggressive. She and her sister were very knowledgeable and patient, and allowed us to try a whole variety of teas. It was a great experience and we spent 2 hours in the shop. In the end, bought 6 types of teas for pretty good prices, and got a free puer and snacks. Jia was also happy to take any questions on tea by Wechat.

Highly recommend shops 1065 and 1119 by Jia. Jia and her sister speaks English.

Delightful spot in Shanghai for tea-lovers
Dec 2019
What a pleasant find in Shanghai for quality tea with thousands of years of history.

I've read many reviews before I came here, nice tea smell once stepped in the tea town, walked around happy no crowded tourists like Shanghai other sites :):), some shops sellers are very passionate to invite you try different teas, take your time and no pressure haha.

We finally went in Jane’s shop (first floor Room1068) in the center with an old Shanghai bicycle outside, turned to be a really smart choice, it’s a tea shop not specially for tourist. Jane runs family business, she is 50th generation, and their family have more than 1400 yrs history for planting tea, they have a tea farm and even their own tea museum in yellow mountain---the most beautiful mountain in China. We are planning to go there next spring.

Moreover here all products price are transparent, no worry pay more might get low quality thou. it’s a China top brand tea, have online like Taobao shops and many offline shops, all prices are the same in whole China, of course offline is better for us because we can taste, haha choose the proper ones...love their green tea, black tea and jasmine tea!

A moment of indescribable sharing at LAOXIEJIACHA shop
Dec 2019
I came to this place with the idea of ​​finding excellent tea and I discovered the LAOXIEJIACHA shop (# 1068). I met Jane with whom I talked for a long time and learned a lot about different types of tea. I had the chance to taste their teas that have been produced by her family for centuries. I can only advise you to go there if you are looking for a high quality tea to offer.

Shop 1065 and 1119. Jia and family!
Nov 2019 • Solo
Shop number 1065 and 1119 is owned by Jia and her family. Jia's service is incredible and her friendliness matches the knowledge level. Her and her sister do business with honour and respect. As for teas, my favorites were Cong Lao (black tea), Xinyang Maojian (green tea) and the Wuyi Rou Gui (oolong).

No disappointment but a pleasant surprise
Oct 2019
Sometime these Tea market and others can be a tourist trap but Tianshan City turned out to be the opposite. I have visited China quite often and truly appreciate Chinese tea, from Oolong to White Anji, from Pu Erh to Da Hong Pao. I always look for quality tea for a good price, not a tourist pricing. I can only say that I found this in the Tea city. It was quite and a large variety of choice. I have bought tea for a very good price and was well treated despite the fact that my Chinese is by no means perfect. Serendipity, sometimes you find something that you are not looking for but turns out to be the best find. I took a few hours to stroll around the city and hear the lovely sound of the Guqin(an instrument that looks like Gushing but with fewer strings). I was invited in to listen, no sale pitch-selling nothing just invited to be a guest at a small concert. What can one desire for......calm music to settle the mind before buying. The young man who played had nothing to sell but appreciated the silent company whilst playing :-)

Have been in this shop a few times now. Had very good time with Jane here. The tea prices were quite nice but no pressure to buy anything.. There are many type of teas are available for tasting and if you really want to learn the tea history and culture, it’s a very good place to visit!

Was warmly welcomed and enjoyed 2 hours of tea tasting and education. Mistakenly left credit card in hotel and could not pay for all the tea I bought- no problem, just Wechat me the $$ later. Really??!!! What service! I went back the next day and brought a friend. Go see Susie and support this wonderful entrepreneur! Then head upstairs and buy some tea pots/accessories.
