Love the old traditional tea ☕️ market. Lots of choices, do your homework first to see which Chinese teas you would be interested in. Never buy from the stalls in the front they are always more expensive. Bought a great selection and negotiated to a good price Enjoy 😊 your ☕️

Once with a friend and once with some business colleagues. As you walk about, look out for the shops with a tea desk. So long as you are prepared to... More

WOW! When my business associate suggested we visit this tea market, I thought "this should be interesting". What an understatement! This place is the size of a Western shopping mall. I lost count of vendors after 100..........and each of them offers a special selection of teas, pots, cups, and other assorted local items. I will definitely find my way back... More
