Jingtan Teahouse is located on the Huashi East Street, Beijing.
It features all the characteristics of a Beijing teahouse: a rockery, traditional furniture, Chinese calligraphy, and landscape paintings decorating the walls. Patrons can play Chinese chess and the Go game here for free.
You can reserve a small (RMB 30/hour), large (RMB 50/hour), or deluxe (RMB 88/hour) private room if you want to hold a private party, or just like to sip your tea quietly. A glass of Xihu Longjing tea or Biluochun tea costs RMB 38. A pot of Tie Guanyin tea is priced at RMB 90 or RMB 180, and a pot of Pu¡¯er tea is RMB 100 (no free refilling).
A portion of Xihu Longjing tea is RMB 110 or RMB 260, a portion of Huangshan Maofeng tea is RMB 60 or RMB 110, and a portion of Tie Guanyin tea costs RMB 90 ~ 680 (free hot water refill). The price for a snack of munchies (pistachio nuts, black and white melon seeds, popcorn) is RMB 10.
The tea shop is adjacent to the teahouse. Customers can buy many kinds of Chinese teas, such as Tie Guanyin (RMB 30 ~ 800/500g), Xihu Longjing (RMB 40 ~ 800/500g), green tea before Qingming (RMB 50 ~ 260/500g) and jasmine tea (RMB 15 ~ 500/500g).
