Ok, some home truths. This really isn’t much of a tour. It’s much, much more than a tour. Tea expert, trained chef, industry insider and bon vivant Joel Shuchat as well as fellow tea entrepreneur and expert Celestina Swanson have been sourcing and exporting China’s finest tea for six caffeine-filled years. Join them on a pilgrimage to Maliandao Tea City, Beijing’s biggest and best tea wholesaling and tasting area. Witness and learn with Joel and Celestina as you taste, talk and cut deals with bigwig sellers from across China’s premier tea regions. It’s all in a day’s work for a tea trader – and an insider’s treat not to miss for any tea lover.

Enjoy but save your money. This is an over priced rip off. They try to convince you that tea is what makes them "young" looking and will help you live longer. Very very expensive

Visiting Chinese Tea House spots can be an informative visit especially if you are interested in knowing about different types of tea. You are also offered various flavors of tea for tasting. But, their prices are specifically designed to rip off tourists who have little...More

By your tea in a regular tea shop instead, these prices are not reasonable; tea quality was difficult to judge

I'd wholeheartedly recommend this tea tour to the Beijing tourist or the grizzled ex-pat - as it's difficult to know how else a foreigner could get so close to such high-end teas without being cheated royally. As an experienced tea drinker, I doubled my knowledge...More

Awesome tour, excellent food and tea! Would recommend it to anyone passing through the city to get away from the normal tourist sites. Great way to spend a morning and see the old Beijing.

I was originally hoping for a short 2-3 hour session of tea, we all got more than we could ask for. Nearly 6 hours of food and tea was a lot more than I thought I could handle, but the whole time passed by beautifully....More
