Teahouses can be found all over China, reflecting the importance of tea in Chinese culture.

Often decorated with exquisite calligraphy, paintings and rare plants in order to attract clientele, teahouses prospered during the Ming and Qing dynasties and became an essential daily ritual for many Chinese people.
