Shanghai’s oldest tea company, opened in the 1800’s during the Qing Dynasty. l wasn’t impressed though. Their selection is limited, and their prices can be very, very high. They do have a very good selection of Dragonwell teas though. However, these are also incredibly expensive, with the priciest set at around 500 RMB (80 USD) for 50g. They do not speak English, so go with a Chinese-speaking friend or be confident in your own Mandarin abilities.
