Chinese Tea Selections

YUNNAN QIZI TEA from Yunnan Puer City

It affords a bright red-yellowish liquid with pure aroma and unique mellow flavor. It has the function of thirsty-quenching, aiding digestion movement, and accelerating your recovery from fatigue or intoxication (e.g. from alcohol).


It's between green tea and black tea, with mild taste, very good for the stomach. The longer you store this tea the better it gets. It is a very good tea when you are going on a diet or to reduce high blood pressure.


Tie Guan Yin is considered part of the Oolong tea family as a semi-fermented tea. Due to sometimes a dark appearance of the dry leaves and an ancient story, Tie Guan Yin is named after the Iron Goddess of Mercy. When it is steeped in boiled water, it sends out strong fragrance, and its taste is heavy, born with the strong orchid fragrance. The first taste will be bitter but it will develop into a sweet one.

BI LUO CHUN From Jiangsu Province

Bi Luo Chun, means 'green and curly leaves of spring'. One of its outstanding quality is its fruit aroma, endowed with peach, plum, loquat, and orange that intercropped with it. Another peculiarity is its early cropping. The harvest starts from the Spring Equinox, a Chinese solar term around the beginning of March, when leaf bud is about three quarter inch long. It would need 68,000 - 74,000 tender leaves to produce one pound high-grade tea, making it one of most delicate green tea in China.

DRAGON EYES OF JASMINE from Fujian Province

An early spring premium grade fragrant jasmine green tea, Dragons Eye is picked in the misty mountains of Fujian Province. Only the most tender green buds and selected leaves are hand rolled into small pearls, giving this tea its exquisite shape, fresh aroma and clear liquor. This hand rolled tea has undergone the traditional jasmine scenting process.

This tea can be kept in a pot for a long time and is very good for older people to drink.

Dragons Eye is one of the best green teas from China.

16 years of legendary service and breathtaking views on the Yulong River Yangshuo Guilin China

Welcome to Yangshuo Mountain Retreat, 阳朔胜地 a riverside gem among Yangshuo hotels. The Retreat was originally conceived as a simple ecolodge where expat friends could escape from the chaos of polluted mega-cities. In the beginning, there was just Angel and a telephone at the front desk. As we grew in popularity, we found it necessary to continually upgrade accommodation, adding wireless broadband and even a pizza oven! But guestrooms have remained simple as when we began: no telephone, no TV, and locally made bamboo furniture. We've stayed true to the authenticity of our original concept, like making our own beds and offering a simple farm-to-table menu with a few western favorites. Our restaurant now has great wines too, but we remain one of the only certified sustainable Yangshuo hotels where guests from around the world can experience the beauty and serenity of Yangshuo Guilin China. We're unique among Yangshuo hotels for our commitment to sustainability and empowering the wonderful local people who run the Yangshuo Mountain Retreat.
