So, not going to lie, there is a lot of good tea in China. I often buy loose leaf and bagged tea at the grocery store, but Alex and I have also treated ourselves twice to a fairly magical afternoon tea at Theatre Tea. Theatre Tea is a sweet shop in the World Financial Center, right across from the Beijing landmark “the Pants.”
Theatre Tea is a cute shop with nice lighting and some pretty hipster tea accessories.
They have a pretty great afternoon tea option that comes with three tiers of goodies (2 of everything which is perfect for sharing). Alex and I have always polished it off with relish.
If you’re not inspired enough by the pictures, here’s a little parting wisdom from a napkin.
