Tea house and Gift Shop
Always delicious and giving you a chance to try something culturally different, why not take your taste buds on a tour of China right here?
Food and beverages are a simple but very important part of Chinese culture. The Garden offers a Tea Shop where you can purchase traditional style Chinese teas and food in the form of steamed buns (both sweet and savoury) and dumplings.
You can eat these in our beautiful Tea House (heated in the colder months for your comfort) or at tables and chairs in the courtyards around the Garden.
At various times of the year, during festivals and other important events, we also offer food specific to the occasion - like Moon Cakes for the Moon Festival and Zongzi during the Dragon Boat Festival.
The Garden Gift Shop has a range of good quality affordable gifts sourced from Shanghai. It includes traditional chopstick sets, tea sets, embroideries and silk fans. Games and puzzles are available for purchase as well as accessories such as bags, wallets, key rings and umbrellas. These aren't seen for sale elsewhere – come away with a memorable keepsake or a unique gift.
