A very nice tea house with kind and friendly staff. Very interesting desserts and nice tea. They also hsve shadow theatre which I found quite amazing. Talented puppeteers and live Chinese music. When you are in Beijing you've got to visit this place.

Don't bother with this. It is not really expensive, and it includes a good mix of different types of performance. Unfortunately, none of the performers are actually any good at what they do, the english text on the screens on the side is in best...More
