Tea is an integral part of Chinese culture, and what trip to Shanghai would be complete without experiencing a slice of traditional Chinese life. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing atmosphere, nuanced flavors, or health benefits, Shanghai has a tea house for you.
Wanling Tea House, named for its owner, is separated into three zones. The first is the tea shop, where visitors can try teas from China and India. The second is a public tea room for tastings, and the third is a private reservations-only VIP tea room. Wanling Tea House specializes in Tie Guanyin, a premium variety of oolong tea that goes through a nine-step process to make it into your cup.
