Following the aroma of tea on Ma Lian Dao Street, I came to Man Tang Xiang, a large tea shop holding many types of famous teas, as well as exquisite tea sets. Entering the gate of Man Tang Xiang, I was astonished at its size. It occupied the whole fourth floor of the Beijing International Tea Town building.

What I really liked was how Man Tang Xiang offered details for each tea type they sell, including beautiful legends and history. For example, take the tea Da Hong Pao, which literally means "red robe". The name originated from a red-robed scholar, who miraculously recovered from his illness after he drank this tea.

In one section of Man Tang Xiang, I took notice of the green tea with a very clear green color. Its straight leaves look like the leaves of bamboos. It's called Zhu Ye Qing, and made in the famou Emei Mountain of Sichuan Province.

In addition to teas, they also offer tea sets. The most extraordinary tea sets were made of jade. It's said that jade could purify the water to make the tea more tasteful.

If you're tired after looking around, sit down at the cozy teahouse to experience the colorful tea culture. You, may also choose to read in the tea museum, or enjoy live classical Guzheng music performances at the music section.

Teas cost from anywhere from RMB 30 to RMB 1000 per 100 grams.

What I appreciate:
Splendid tea culture exhibition

What customers appreciate:
Various famous tea offered at reasonable price
