Spring tea refers to the new tea leaves harvested in Spring. In ancient China, tea was drunk according to the seasons of the year. Once the golden tea season had passed after Spring, the quality of the tea also would drop a level. According to a classical Chinese saying, the “flavor of the tea will change after the rains fall, and moisture accumulates within the leaves.”

So the best quality tea will be picked in March and April. The speciality of the tea picked during this period is tender leaves, less moisture in the leaves and excellent taste with freshness and fragrance. During this time, Maliandao is full of green tea with a cornucopia of flavors and varieties. Tea vendors are also busy with setting tea out to show the passersby and also busy with packaging tea for hotels, restaurants and tea shops outside of Maliandao and even outside of Beijing.

The Hutong will launch our spring tea tour during the month of April for those of you who are really passionate about tea and would love to forage some top quality green tea leaves.

Celebrating a Decade of Exceptional Cultural Experiences

We opened our Hutong courtyard doors ten years back with a simple wish: to create a special place where people could come together, learn from one another, and have a great time. We never imagined we would be where we are today: running programs across China, with an incredible team from across the globe.

十年前我打开了在北新九道湾1号的四合院大,只了一个愿望:大家提供一个可以相聚,学与共享美好光的平台。就这样,胡同可以从那个时候一直走到了今天。现在,我们拥有这来自世界各地的团队,并在全中国各个地方都有不同的活动, For our ten-year anniversary, we’ll be celebrating each month of 2017.  一眨眼,十年去了,在迎接2017年的到来的同,我想要和大家一起个难得的庆典
