    Editor’s Description

    Last updated: Jun 7, 2019
    Quiet teahouse located inside the Jade Buddha Temple for those who want to immerse themselves in Zen Buddhist culture. They've got a long desk for guests to copy manuscripts, the staff plays the guzheng in the background, and the tea “sommeliers” treat “everyone as equal”. Upstairs is a mixture of Chinese and Japanese-style tea rooms, decorated with calligraphy by the abbot of the temple, Master Jue Xing. Downstairs, it’s for more casual drinking, as the tea is brewed on one “wet table” (湿泡台) which is really traditional but also messy. Thirteen pu’er and five white teas available, including Wuyi yancha (a variety of oolong) from the well-known Ruiquan Factory. The temple closes four hours earlier than the tea house, so you’ll need to call the staff to access the sidedoor after 4.30pm.
