The teahouse culture boomed in Song Dynasty and overcame restaurants in number during Ming Dynasty, nowadays it is as prosperous as the country, a symbol of Chinese culture.
If you are not in Guangzhou, don’t worry, teahouses are everywhere in China. They are a strong and beautiful tradition, one of my favorites to admire and participate.

Home to the Five Rams Statue, the symbol of Guangzhou, the beautiful Yuexiu holds diverse points of interest and is an inside on real Chinese culture.
The park counts with 860,000 square, 3 artificial lakes, and the legendary Yuexiu Mountain and its 7 hills. It’s a perfect mixture of nature and culture due to the museums, monuments, towers, and other historical sites spread around its grounds.
From pedal boat fun to the ancient city wall from Ming Dynasty it’s a nice day out scaping the buzz of the city.
One of the attractions of the park is the stunning teahouse and vegetarian restaurant housed in a Ming Dynasty building.
The price is a little salty but the environment is just on point, perfect for a calm afternoon chatting while sipping delicious tea.
Cantonese style teahouses are especially appreciated outside China, serving Dim Sum apart from the tea is the main difference from other teahouses that focus only on tea.
It is really special to be able to participate in this kinds of activity, I really recommend it to anyone visiting China, it is a must do.
