Tea houses in China are probably one of most typical stopover for any visitors who love this beverage, renowned for its health benefits since the dawn of humanity. Chengdu was my gateway to my first visit to China, and besides looking out for pandas, savouring local tea was top of the list and so I went to see Renmin park with its lovely tea house. The place is popular with locals. Walk along the shady trees or do like the locals – relaxing away chatting with friends over tea served in large thermos bottles.

    • Not too sure about Beijing, there are tea houses where taste, buy all sort of grade tea, but Chengdu is special – a nice little tranquil place🙂
