Every Chinese city will have at least one tea market so if you are not in Guangzhou don’t worry, there will be a delightful market near you too.
On western minds tea come in tea bags, that can make for a whole discovering experience when visiting tea markets in China. Here they come in a spectacle of packings, straw wrapped, inside dried fruits, paper wrapped, in all sizes and shapes.
Even if you don’t really care for tea, they look so good that you want to bring some home. The same happens with the tea sets and tables, you suddenly wish to build a tea room in your house.😜
Visiting Guangzhou’s market we found friendly and very welcoming people and no other tourist to be seen, a real contact with the culture and the people, perfect for those wanting to winded faraway from the crowds.
