Boasting more than just tea leaves of all varieties and tea-related products like tea sets and kettles, Laoximen Tea Market is also four stories’ worth of calligraphy, fans, ceramics and jewellery for sale. Vendors are much more aloof than what you’d expect at, say, the Fabric Market, making for a more laid-back and quiet shopping experience – a mini-pond in the center of the first floor adds to the relaxed vibe. Whip out your Pleco or Google Translate for this place, as most transactions will require at least basic Mandarin.
