Taiyuanfang Teahouse and Classic Furniture

[ From: Jason Jia | Published: 2008-07-08 Views: 2355 | Booked times: 54 ]

Taiyuanfang Teahouse is an expert in traditional Chinese tea art.

 

It is situated on the second floor of its building. The entrance door is guarded by two clay statues of ancient warriors. Classical furniture items line both sides of the corridor. On the left, there are small private rooms. Step ahead, and turn left: a line of traditional Chinese tables and chairs are set alongside the windows. Customers can sit there, and enjoy both a cup of Chinese tea and the outside scenery. Soft classical Chinese music is floating in the air.

 

On a shelf, many kinds of Yunnan Pu¡¯er teas are on display: their cost ranges from RMB 80 to several thousand yuan. According to a waitress, the house offers over 50 kinds of teas including the famed Longjing, Tie Guanyin and jasmine tea, and a dozen of other refreshments.

 

If you want to enjoy your tea alone or with a small party, rent a private room RMB 20 for an hour, or RMB 80 if you want to keep it without time limits. Refreshments cost RMB 10 a serving. For a party of five or six customers, the cost per person will amount to RMB 30 to RMB 40 on average. A helping of melon seeds or pistachio nuts will be sent for free to customers.

 

The teahouse also shelters the Taiyuanfang Bridge Club.

 

What I appreciated
