Tea house in Beijing and Tianjin

Unlike Kongfu tea in South China, the tea houses in Beijing and Tianjin use green tea or jasmine tea instead of Wulong tea. They don’t have the same level of ceremony that is used for Kongfu tea.

 

Teahouses in Tianjin have the professional performance of Chinese folk art called “Xiangsheng” which can be likened to a “talk-show” in the west.

 

Tea house in Guangdong

The Cantonese have a custom of drinking tea with dim sum in their leisure time or at business meetings. The tea drinking tradition can be traced back over a hundred years to the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

 

The real tea-drinkers preferred to kill time with one pot of fragrantly hot tea and two plates of snacks. In the past, businessmen came here to exchange information as well as to enjoy life a little bit over a cup of tea with some snacks.

 

Kungfu tea (Kungfu cha), the "espresso" of Chinese teas with a formidable kick, is still flourishing and remains an important part of social etiquette in Chaozhou, Guangdong province.

 

Tea house in Sichuan

Sichuan has teahouses in towns and cities everywhere. There is a saying, "China has the best teahouses in the world and Chengdu has the best teahouses in China."

 

Located on the streets in Sichuan Province, teahouse serves unique local cuisine and is home to the true local living style. Teahouses have been an important home for social interaction and gathering place since ancient times.

 

Whichever tea house you go into, you can appreciate the strong style of Sichuan: the bamboo chairs, the square tables, the particular tea sets, the cooper teapots and the special skill of filling water by Dr. Tea, the name given to the tea waiters in Sichuan.

 

You can also watch Chuanju Opera in tea houses. To attract the audience, Chuanju masters developed a unique sense of humor and performance skills, such as mask changing and knife play.

 

Tea house in South of Yangtze River

It is a custom for Yangzhou people to have morning tea in teahouses, which is part of Yangzhou culture and also an indication of rich Chinese food culture. Pingtan, a form of storytelling accompanied by music, is also popular in tea houses in south of Yangtze River.

 

The Huaiyang-style cuisine is popular in Jiangsu and Zhejiang province. It is ranked as the top of all eight famous Chinese cuisine styles, with pastry and snacks being the key components.

 

Dim sum generally refers to steamed buns, thin tofu noodles in broth, giant soup dumplings, and fried fritters.
