Organic teas are made without artificial pesticides and fertilizers. For organic teas in Beijing, there is no better place to go than Gengxiang. Located on the Maliandao Tea Street, this top organic tea brand offers a huge selection of natural teas on two floors.
As I stepped into the store, the counters filled with organic teas greeted me. Their most popular teas are jasmine and green tea. But I also saw plenty of Westlake Longjing, Tie Guanyin, and Yunnan Pu¡¯er tea. Prices, per 500 grams, started at RMB 60. Although top quality leaves can cost upwards of over 3000 yuan.
One attractive feature for casual tea drinkers is the tea-tasting area. Here, you can take a seat and sample different types of teas for your favorite.
Further back in the store, I found a large section of various tea accessories. These include full tea sets, tea boilers, porcelain and purple clay tea pots, and tea cups. If that¡¯s not enough, they even have a teahouse on the 2nd floor, serving choice teas and offering tea foot baths.
