    Definitely go to Susie!
    Susie and her tea shop are a guarantee you will become a tea-drinker. Besides the wide selection of green, white, oolong, black, dark and speciality tea, Susie has comprehensive tea knowledge, and will teach you all about tea while tasting. Ended up getting a year worth of tea :) You can find Susie's shop location in one of the other comments.

    Very chill tea experience
    After reading the most recent reviews I decided to look for suzies shop as well. Had a bit of difficulty since I didn't really understand the map that is posted down here somewhere. What I didn't get at first is that suzies shop is outside the main building. Suzie wasn't at the shop when I found it, but her number was on the door and I called her. She came running! The experience itself was very nice. I'm very novice in the tea world. She explained a lot while letting me try all the teas I wanted to. She didn't try and push any teas on me. She just let me try them and decide for myself. When showing me a new tea, she didn't put out the most expensive ones, but started me out with the lower tiers first and then showed me the higher tiers just to compare. At no point did I feel pressured to buy anything. That said, I bought way more than I was planning too. Her prices seemed really fair and they seemed very good quality. Thank you Suzie. I'll definitly visit again if I'm back in Shanghai!

    Visit Susie's Shop!
    After reading the reviews here, I gave Susie a call this morning after easily finding her shop. Coming from a tea family, she shares with passion her wealth of knowledge in a warm and kind way. She made me feel at home in such an overwhelming tea city. I'm excited to have her contact for future purchases she can ship to me. I highly recommend her shop. I was curious to look at teacups and packaging, she guided the way to other shops.

    Amazing
    Amazing. I followed your advice to taste and buy from Susie at 1262, and I loved it. I also bought some teaware from the second floor, but I ran the risk of getting in serious debt for overspending... so I ran. Lovely experience.

That’s the place where you should buy your tea in China. Until this day we are ordering it just from there. If you find your seller then they can even deliver it to your home. We got a recommendation to visit Susie. She speaks English and does entire tea ceremony for you. She is such a sweet and genuine person. You can see it’s her true passion.

There are dozens of shops in Tian Shan Tea City selling tea and tea ware. We stumbled across Xiang Yuan Ming Cha by chance. The sales person Sara is knowledgeable about tea and speaks fluent English. They sell decent tea for every day as well as high end tea for special occasions. Good tea costs money and their prices seem fair to me. I recommend it to those who acquired the taste for Chinese tea.

I have visited shop 1057. Mrs Mary and her colleagues were very kind and friendly. I spent around 40 minutes trying different kinds of green, white and black tea. Jasmene tea was very awesome.
Mrs Mary could speak English and Japanese very well.
I recommend her shop for everyone to visit.

We have visited this shop on the second of January (2020), exactly 1065 department. The owner of the shop is very pleasant and benevolent. We had about an hour of tea ceremony, while which we tried about 15 different types of tea for any taste. Owner of the shop answered for all our questions accessibly. Than we bought tea for not small amount of money and had small discount and 3 small presents.
