Spent over 2 hours with Suzy listening to her describe different types of teas and sampling so many wonderful varieties. She is incredible and offers you a great selection and her English is wonderful - her stall is in the middle section of Tea City and can be a little difficult to find but it's well worth the adventure.

Each trip to China I buy around two kilograms of tea I bought all of the tea I wanted at this spot. There are several floors of people selling tea ans tea accessories. I bought tea from Anhui, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fugian and Taiwan. I am a fan of greener oolong teas I was able to buy four different green oolong... More

This visit to Shanghai, I have visited 1065’s tea shop again, this owner opens new shop in 1119. Here is clean and have some space to sit at ease. There seems to be various sorts of tea, especially Black tea…. We enjoyed special “Da hongpao” which is produced in Fujian province, we never tried such a elegant fragrance before… Thanks... More

While a lot of people recommended this place to me, I didn't find it too amazing. I found the place to lack any enthusiasm - whether in terms of shop keepers selling their stuff or even the visitors buying things. It seemed quite dull overall. I did however visit a shop therein which provided services in English. I tasted a... More

Unlike tea houses (where you pay for the atmosphere mostly) here you can experience the tea itself in the way it's meant to be. I visited Sara's shop on the second floor, stall 2133 and her English, as well as knowledge about tea and presentation was exceptionally good. We tried several teas from different types - blacks, pu-erh, green in... More

We also visited Susie in shop 1051, which is on the main floor as you enter the Tianshan Tea City, so is easy to find. Susie's English is very good, and her knowledge of tea is commanding. We felt she had a great variety at excellent prices...buy here instead of in the Yu Garden area! We had a wonderful experience... More

I highly recommend Susie's shop at stall 1051. I had read about her location through other reviews on here and she did not disappoint. I had some of the best teas I've ever tried, and left feeling knowledgeable and warm with Susie's hospitality. The second floor is also very good for tea pots and accessories.

I discovered this place near the end of my trip so I only had time to drop by a after work towards the end of the day. It was a bit of a trip but I'm so glad I took the time to do it. Essentially it's a building complex with many little shops inside and out. The building is... More

Great Chinese tea appreciation experience @ 1065!! I visited Tianshan Tea City yesterday wanting to i) have a good Chinese tea appreciation session; ii) purchase my stock of favourite Xihu Longjing (西湖龙井) and Tie Guanyin (铁观音); and iii) help a friend to purchase Da Hong Pao (大红袍).

Staying in Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
