  • Beautiful tea house location surrounded by water. In the evening the whole neighborhood brightened is very impressive. Tea is served with little snacks like quail eggs, tofu and Chinese pastries. They don't have a menu for eating as is the case in other tea houses. Good teas. Prices aren't low.
