During your china travel, don’t forget to go for tea tasting at Dr. Tea as part of your Beijing Tours as this is a great way to try out different types of teas and get to know some useful information about certain teas as well.

I went for tea tasting at Dr. Tea few days ago and I had lots of fun. The tea hostesses were really helpful and they do provide English tea tasting tours for foreigners.  They speak good English as well so do not worry if you can’t speak mandarin or can’t understand them. The tea hostesss are all professional and very skilled to the point that you will be amaze on the way they make and pour the teas.

During the tour, I have tasted 4 types of tea and learn how to hold the cup and drink certain types of tea. They also provide tea making instructions for everyone at the end of the tea tasting tour. The place also sells different types of tea cups and pots and the prices are quite reasonable. They also provide student prices for tea sets and you could also bargain for better deals with them.
