Traditional Chinese Tea House

During a visit to Lan Su Chinese Garden, the Teahouse in the Tower of Cosmic Reflections offers visitors the ability to sit, relax, and enjoy tea while gazing into the garden. Operated by The Tao of Tea, the Teahouse pairs the beauty and symbolism of the garden with Chinese tea culture. As a part of the garden, admission or membership to Lan Su is required to access the Teahouse.

Teas

Tea presentations are in classical styles with snacks and sweets offered as complements. Traditional Chinese tea serving styles include a variety of teaware, chosen to enhance the art of tea. At the Teahouse, each tea is presented in a vessel specifically chosen to match its category and individual character.

A selection of Chinese teas includes all of the major categories of color and flavor including white, green, oolong, pu-er, black and herbal teas. As the seasons change, the selections change to match complimenting the ever-changing views in the garden.

Light Meals & Snacks

In addition to a wide variety of teas, The Tao of Tea offers light meals of noodle bowls, dumpling bowls, steamed buns and seasonal soups. Smaller snacks include cookies, nuts, mooncakes, and fresh and dried fruit.
