My family is from Fujian, which is home to many famous teas & where tea culture is an important part of our identity.

Since 2004, when I started my tea business I have had the chance to share tea with people from around the world. I am passionate about helping people learn about tea. I travel regularly to improve my knowledge & ensure the provenance of my teas.

I look forward to welcoming you to my tea house.

The experience will be hosted at Wan Ling Tea House, which was established by Wan Ling in 2004.

The Tea House aims to create quiet, relaxing and peaceful teas spaces in which everyone can have the chance to take a break and enjoy tea together or on their own.

Since 2017, Wan Ling Tea House has been based in a beautiful old art-deco style house with it's own courtyard garden.

Had an insightful time tasting quality tea and understanding the basic appreciation of identifying tea quality, tasting tea, brewing and appreciating the tea itself. Would definitely revisit our experience to learn more about tea and the art of tea from Wan Ling if we ever revisit Shanghai
