Maliandao Tea Market

Located in the southwestern part of Xuanwu District, Maliandao Tea Street is the largest tea market in northern China and the most renowned tea street in Beijing. Stretching over approximately 1.5 km, Maliandao Tea Street boasts over 8 large tea malls and around 1000 tea stores offering a wide variety of teas from all over China. These include Anxi Tieguanyin Tea, Huangshan Maofeng Tea, West Lake Dragon Well (Longjing) Tea, Dongting Biluochun Tea, Yunnan Puer Tea, Pingshui Pinhead Tea, and many more, with prices ranging from budget-friendly to premium.

The four-storey building houses a vast array of teas, catering to wholesalers and enthusiasts alike. Visitors can explore teas from different regions, including popular varieties like pu’er and oolong. While primarily catering to wholesalers, the market is also open to casual visitors interested in tea, with vendors often offering samples. Maliandao Lu itself is lined with hundreds of tea shops, offering lower prices compared to those in tourist areas.

To locate the tea market, visitors can look for the statue of Lu Yu, an 8th-century sage considered the “Sage of Tea,” who authored the first book on growing, preparing, and drinking tea. The statue stands prominently outside the market, serving as a landmark for tea enthusiasts and visitors alike.
