Maliandao Tea Market
If you're keen on buying moderately-priced tea sets and a variety of Chinese teas, this massive indoor market is the place to come. Charming it's not—it can be crowded and the stalls are fluorescent-lit—but sold here are hundreds of teas from across China. Sip malty pu'er tea from southern Yunnan province, vegetal longjing green tea from the fields of Hangzhou, and floral Jasmine from Fujian province. Most shops sell teas in quantities of 100g, though you'll get a better price if you buy half a kilo. Although Beijing is easy enough to navigate on your own, this is one place where, if you don't speak Mandarin, a guide is extremely helpful.
