As China is the original land of tea culture, its teahouses are primarily concerned with spreading the knowledge and benefits of this rich practice, while protecting it from dilution. Therefore, presenting the highlights of the tea culture has been a core-content of most teahouses. The teahouses in China have taken up many traditional forms, such as those of a Chinese place, garden, or communal hall. Other commonly seen forms include the traditional teahouses, Europe cafes and forms of joint lineage. The interior design of the Chinese Teahouse, or hardware, often utilizes tiles, porcelain and woods, portraying to the casual visitor an well-aged air in tradition. These are well accompanied by regimental accoutrements of tea-wares. As you experience Contemporary Teahouses in China, it is essential that you do not overlook the software of the teahouse. We would be hard-pressed to capture the flavors of the tea itself, but we do not want to rob you of this complete experience and can only urge you to experience the spaces and their wares for yourself.
