Beijing pictures, HuaXiangYuan Tea Shop in Beijing

Decorated in traditional Chinese style, HuaXiangYuan Tea Shop specializes in TieGuanYin (Iron Avalokitesvara) tea. Very popular with the Chinese, TieGuanYin calms the nerves and gives a soothing feel to those who drink it. Due to the nature of its large, heavy leaves, full enjoyment requires a traditional tea set for brewing.


Designated by DiaoYuTai State Guesthouse, a famous hotel built in 1958 for receiving foreign dignitaries, as their exclusive tea producer, HuaXiangYuan Tea is renowned for its unique taste and superior quality. In fact, the national government even uses HuaXiangYuan¡¯s tea as gifts to foreign dignitaries.


The tea shop comprises two floors. On the first floor, various well-packaged TianGuanYin teas are displayed on shelves. Furthermore, there are several classical hardwood tables and chairs. Customers can sit here and sip TieGuanYin tea in a traditional Chinese setting. On the second floor, there are some private rooms for customers to hold tea parties.


Prices for various TieGuanYin teas in fine packaging range from RMB 260 to RMB 7500 per 500g. They also offer various Pu¡¯er tea cakes and bricks for RMB 180 to RMB 980 (250g/357g).

Beijing pictures, A scene in TianXiaPu'er Tea Shop

Its taste is stronger than longjin tea, and some people might find it a bit too peculiar. Pu¡¯er Tea is highly regarded in China where it is considered highly beneficial to one¡¯s health.


In the shop, the varieties of Pu¡¯er teas are displayed orderly on the shelves. Some green plants here and there enhance the shopping environment. Two ancient and simple tea tables and some round stools made of tree stumps offer a welcome seating to tea lovers. The pungent aroma of Pu¡¯er tea drifts in the air.


Prices for tea cakes (raw/processed, 357g/per) vary widely, from RMB 55 to 1,600 apiece. Prices for tea bricks (raw/processed, 250g/per) range from RMB 60 to RMB 860. Bowl-shaped compressed teas (raw/processed) cost RMB 5~40 for 50g. Prices for 50 g of loose-leaf tea (raw/processed) range from RMB 9 to RMB 260.


The shop also carries some tea ware: the larger tea cups cost RMB 28 each, and the smaller ones RMB 30. Prices for tea sets (4 pieces) range from RMB 150 to RMB 250.

The diversity of Pu¡¯er teas, agreeable environment for a tea tasting party, reasonable prices.
