Tea Houses, Chengdu: 12 reviews and 18 photos
Drinking tea is a nationwide institution, but Chengdu has always been famous for its numerous teahouses. In days gone by there were a place to meet and finalise deals, hold meetings or relax at the end of a hard day's work listening to storytellers or watching troupes of performers.
The teahouses took a battering during the years of the Cultural Revolution when such elegance was labelled a "bourgeois" but they have subsequently been revived.
Today you'll find most tea houses in parks, temple grounds and theatres.
