Visit a Teahouse

Herbal tea has long time been enjoyed by Guangzhou people, especially in the morning. Wang Laoji Herbal Tea is the most famous tea in this area. It is said that herbal tea can alleviate summer heat and cure sore throats caused by winter dryness.

Teahouses are busy by 11:00 in the morning. Serving Tea requires strict attention to the teapot, tea leaves, water quality and even how to pour and drink the tea. The teapot in use is as small as a fist and the teacup as small as half a ping pong ball.
