Decorated in a traditional style, Yipingudao (English name: Supreme Tea Life) is a tea shop specializing in quality Puer tea from Yunnan Province.

 

In the shop, you will see a spacious interior with a traditional Chinese atmosphere. Various Puer teas are displayed on a wooden shelf. Cake-shaped Puer teas, which weigh 200g to 1000g, cost RMB 40~380. A brick-shaped Puer tea is priced at RMB 135 (250g).

 

Tea sets are on display as well. A rectangular tea plate made of ebony with eight pieces of porcelain pea pot and cups looks graceful, and is priced at RMB 408. A set of the famous purple clay tea sets made in Yixing, Jiangsu Province costs RMB 160.

 

The most attractive thing in the shop is the Thousand Taels of Tea. You will find it right on your left side after entering the door of the shop. It looks like a columned tree trunk that is 147 cm in height, 20 cm in diameter, and 1000 taels in weight (an ancient measurement unit). It was made in Anhua, Hunan Province, and was collected by the tea company in January, 1989. As it is no longer produced, the tag price is a whopping RMB 168,000!

 

This tea company also owns a large teahouse nearby, so you can actually try out their teas before buying.
