Quality tea needs quality tea sets to compliment it. As a large tea shop at Maliandao tea street, Xiang Yuan Shao Pin offers one-stop shopping for both.
Teas offered at Xiang Yuan Shao Pin come in all types, including green tea, black tea, white tea, and floral tea. They¡¯re all produced at China's famous tea plantations.
Pu'er tea is one of the more popular teas on the market today. It¡¯s easily recognizable, with its unique packaging. I especially noticed one kind of Pu'er tea contained in plastic bottles. They look like candies. The shop owner told me Pu'er teas are compressed to make it easier to transport through the mountains where the tea grows.
Price of the pressed Pu'er tea is RMB 72 per 100 grams.
As for tea sets, the highlights of the shop are their ¡±huo hua¡± ¨C which means ¡®to activate¡¯ ¨C porcelain. The teapot can ¡®activate¡¯ the water poured within over 20 different microelements beneficial to one¡¯s health.
Price of this tea set, which contains one teapot and six tea cups, is RMB 1200.
