We did not go in for tea. Was just outside the tea house admiring its menu and was really walking through while enjoying the lanterns. Not really interested in expensive tea at that time!!! However, this tea house looks really charming and its entrance is quite welcoming with an array of tea cups and tea sets to be admired and purchased.

The place is beautiful, just in front of the Yuyan Garden of Shanghai. The atmosphere and decoration are very nice.
Evne when tea is a bit expensive, it's a wonderful experience.

Grossly overpriced and terrible service

Talk about service without a smile...

My partner and I were sat down and pointed to the most expensive page on the menu (235RMB for a cup of tea).

The waitress then stood over us whilst we flicked through the menu to try and find a more reasonably priced tea. After 30 seconds, she scoffed and walked off.

We had a nice view from the window, so we decided to stay and purchase a still unreasonably priced tea for one person for 118 RMB, she said it was not possible to order one tea as there are two people. We said we understood the menu meant the tea is for one person, but only one of us will be drinking it. After some huffing and puffing she agreed and stormed off, only to come back with an under-brewed tea.

After only a few minutes she then came back with the bill and an attitude.

Beware. As others have reported, they show only a portion of the menu and push you to the most expensive options. 238 RMB (almost US$35) for a cup of tea. Make sure you demand to see the full menu. Very dishonest.

An interesting tea house in traditional format near Yuyuan garden
Jun 2019
Queued for long to enter. The tea and the service are average, but the story of the bends in the bridge to slow off spirits and the lake it is situated upon are a charm. Do go on week days. SOme days it is too crowded to appreciate.

Shanghais oldest teahouse, in The middle of a small Lake, with a interesting bridge.
Go up to The first floor, sit by a Window, and look out at The crowd downstairs, while you enjoy your tea. The House is from 1784, and has been a teahouse since 1855. And If you sit a little bit, you can imagine, that you are 100 years back in time.On groundfloor you Can buy tea, cups and teapots.
Be aware, that they offer you a tea-arrangement, with teaeggs, tofu and ricecockies, that are very expensive. It was not possible to see other pages of The menucard. We paid 326 yens for a White and a jasmin tea.....

Beautiful Teahouse

The teahouse is located in Old Shanghai, which is now a shopping district. The teahouse is in a picturesque setting in the market, surrounded by bridges and fountains.

We had a black tea service which came with quail eggs, tofu, a gummy rice ball and candied dates for two. The tea was excellent. The staff does speak some English to help you make selections. You can purchase tea and tea service sets downstairs.

good tea with a cool view
Aug 2018 • Family
My son and I saw the tea house in the YuYuan gardens and decided to check it out. It wasn't too busy and we got a table right by a window so we could look out over the bridge and water and see people and beauty. It was also nice to sit inside on a rainy day.

The tea was good and the service was fair. It was a bit expensive, but you are paying for the location and experience. We liked our tea (we tried jasmine and green tea) and thought it was worth the cost.

I got to the gardens early to avoid the crowds. It’s not my first time to Shanghai but as I was in the gardens I thought I’d give the tea house a try as it has a nice view and a bit of a rest. I was one of only 2 tables in the whole place. As I sat down I was only given 2 very expensive teas to choose from. I took the menu and said I would like to look though it. I choose a much cheaper tea than the one that was being forced upon me. Next time, the tea turnsup with all these snacks of which I did not order so I sent them away. I was then asked to pay by card immediately( later I’ve read on trip advisor that they are double charging people so lucky I paid in cash). The experience put I bad taste in my mouth. I would not recommend.

Expensive!

Great expensive tea by the way. I have been at better tea houses, the lady just served us tea and left! Did not explain a thing. Very straight face, not a good experience. Cash only and if you seat outside it has a nice view!
