Yipingudao (Supreme Tea Life) Teahouse is located on the 4th floor of Zhen Bei Mansion, 118 meters north of The Temple of Heavens north entrance.


The teahouse occupies more than 2,000 square meters, including a capacious tea hall and 24 private rooms. These are connected by two corridors decorated with green foliage and animal-shaped sculptures. While relaxing here, customers can enjoy the views of various plants, flowers and rockeries on the balcony, as well as old porcelain wares displayed on wooden shelf and Chinese calligraphic works and paintings hanging on walls.


In front of the tea hall, there is an area for a master of ceremonies, and a stone sculpture depicting an ancient man making tea on a campfire. Customers may enjoy wireless internet access for free. However, what truly separates Supreme Tea Life from other tea houses is the variety. Not only can you enjoy a cup of tea, but also snacks, cold drinks, and even a hot meal.


The minimum charge for one table with four chairs is RMB 88/hour. For a single guest, it is RMB 20/hour. Patrons staying here from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm on weekdays, however, can enjoy 40% off on their minimum spending limit. Tea prices are reasonable. A pot of Dark Oolong costs RMB 68~288. Set meals typically go for RMB 15~25, while stews and snacks like dumplings, beef noodles, steamed buns cost RMB 8~15. Prices for three dozens of homemade Hakka dishes, the southern Chinas traditional cuisine with strong tastes, range from RMB 8 to RMB 168. Supreme Tea Life also serves many drinks, including cola, juice, beer and wine.


The tea house also features private rooms. There are 3 sizes, with prices ranging from RMB 95 per 3 hours to RMB 233 per 3 hours. These cover basic refreshments and tea for each patron. Every room has a glass ceiling, allowing for the sunlight to pass through. Customers can enjoy board games such as Chinese chess and Go while relaxing inside. Room service is just a call away.


The waitresses at Supreme Tea Life are very professional. While they get mostly Chinese customers, they do have experience with foreign customers. So lack of basic Chinese is not a problem. With such a relaxing atmosphere, a great selection, the courteous service, Supreme Tea Life offers a little something to everyone.
