But we could t find a single tea cafe!
We know almost every tea seller, small stall or large shop, will provide tasting but that's not what we wanted.

Out of all the tea shops along this street, I think my wife and I got lucky and found a good one. It was a small shop named Taishun Yun Wu. There was an older gentleman and a young girl working there, and the girl...More

Before going to Maliandao Tea Street, we visited the Hangzhou area (Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China), as well as the Pu'er, Yunnan area, looking for...More
