Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our first ever trip to China from the Uk. We love tea! We loved the shop itself and had a beautiful selection of teas to buy. It wasn’t busy when we arrived later in the evening. The staff weren’t able to speak English so my husband awkwardly purchased our goodies. Staff weren’t friendly particularly but it’s a great shop. Reading other reviews there are other tea shops to visit that will tell you stories about the origins of tea. Shame this one didn’t. I didn’t feel comfortable here really. Hubby is thicker skinned than me!

Stopped by to have icecream after having exotic insects at WangFujing Snack Street lol.
- My local friend strongly recommended this tea shop that sells soft serve ice cream in a cone.
- Located on same street as Wangfujing Snack Street
- There are 3 flavours ( Green Tea, Jasmine Tea, Flower Tea) for RMB 6 each.
- I took the jasmine flavoured one since the green tea wasn't available.
- Nice smooth texture, creamy and flavourful.
- Portion was reasonable as well.
- Visited in winter january 2016.

Their jasmine tea ice cream is the best tea-flavored ice cream. It has all the fragrance of the jasmine tea, but in perfect ice team cone form.

We came to Wuyutai Wangfujing because it was highly recommended as a place for tourists to get tea as gifts and while they do have a huge range, the service left much to be desired.

We visited the shop at around 830pm on a Friday evening and it wasn't all that busy. Even so, it was hard to get anyone to assist us. While most other tea shops will happily explain the different teas that they carry and it's health benefits (as we later found out), the staff at Wuyutai seem only interested in closing a deal.

Even so, we didn't let that deter us and ended up spending over 500rmb on a range of teas for friends and family. The final straw came as we were making payment. As we enquired about the tea containers behind the counter, we were rudely told to just help ourselves to what we want and not ask too many questions.

My advice is to give Wuyutai a miss and go for the smaller tea shops who will happily have a chat with you about the teas they carry and even offer you a cup or two to sample before buying - all for a much lower price and comparable quality. Wuyutai has clearly become too complacent to the needs of customers.

A few shops down from Wuyutai Wangfujing is Tenfu Teas with comparable range, competitive prices and very friendly tea ladies who do not pressure customers into buying something quickly. There are also a couple of small tea shops on Yandai Xie Street in Houhai who are friendly and wallet friendly.

Being fed up of the typical tea shops in Beijing (high prices, fake tea ceremonies, staff constantly following you), I asked the concierge at my hotel about where to find a place with good tea, ok prices and "calmness". He suggested to try Wu Yu Tai just "behind the corner" as that is where the hotel would buy its own tea.
What a good tip that was: I wasn't attacked as soon as I entered, no one even remotely hinted or tried to start a tea ceremony and, in a basic english, just let me know to take my time and ask if help needed.
I found some excellent oolong and white teas, good price and all after getting very good help from the lady. Shop is now my official tea provider and looking forward to going back next week!!!!

Though this tea house is famous for tea, my friend and I opt for their equally famous green tea ice cream. It costs CNY 9 and it is very delicious. Be expected a long queue to buy your tasty ice cream!

My sister and I were on a trip to Beijing and, as tea lovers, were determined to try tea at a teahouse. After running around the city all day searching for the ones we had marked on our itinerary and not finding them (they had closed and online info had not been updated) we were tired and frustrated and about to give up. We decided to go for a walk and came across this place! We had a pot of jasmine tea, and while it was a bit expensive, it was delicious. We had a great time sitting and sipping, and the teaware was beautiful. After our hot tea we decided to get a matcha milkshake to go and it was delicious! Definitely worth a trip if you have time and are looking for some good tea and snacks.
