Entries about teahouse


Drinking tea like it's our business.

sunny 90 °F

Our final stop of the day was at a teahouse outside of the Temple of Heaven. The tea girl (my term) taught us how to properly serve 5 different types of tea and did a tea tasting with our group. We tried Jasmine tea, black tea with lychee, pure tea, fruit tea and a green tea. The majority of the group preferred the sweet fragrant jasmine tea. Our hostess had a good time teasing Dan for not knowing more about tea. I guess all Chinese are supposed to know this stuff? Who knew? Not Dan, that’s for sure!
