Yǔ Zhī Jiā Teahouse

Teahouse in Suzhou

Pretty teahouse in a historic wood-fronted building on the edge of the canal that runs parallel to Pingjiang Lu. Tall windows that open directly onto the water make this is a perfect place to retreat and peoplewatch. Green tea is served by the glass (from ¥58), while speciality black teas like pu'er are offered by the pot (from ¥168).

A small selection of snacks like nuts and dried fruits are also available.
