Here’s a place one should not miss in Beijing. The artful master of tea – Green T House Living. But not just for the tea, but a meal for all senses with a beautiful presentation, east-meets-west cuisine and the longest list of specialty teas I’ve ever seen (presented in a really thick book). The space is also a piece of art of its own, and they sell some lovely books, teas and other products there also.
The time stops in this place – it is for relaxation, good company and peace and quiet. And certainly no crowds here. Both the food and service are excellent, and the only con for the place would be the price, but even that really is at par with other quality establishments.
Visit also their websites to find out about events and workshops they organise. And once you are in the area don’t miss the art galleries next door, as a whole this is certainly a unique and calming experience. And I should also mention that this is not only my opinion of the place as Green T House is also 2010 Wallpaper Design Award winner. A lovely place altogether!
My review of Green T House Living tea house/restaurant/art space: Excellent
Address: 中華人民共和國 北京市崔各庄乡合各庄村318号 / No.318 Cuigezhuang Xiang Hegezhuang Cun, Chaoyang District (tel. 010-64342519), open 11.00-23.00
“ A sensory experience of tasty, well-presented food, excellent service, lovely calming music and beautiful surroundings inside out. Take your time to enjoy the place. I think this place would be well-suited for a romantic dinner and I would be more enjoyable without little kids as there is no play area and there is valuable art on display.”
