The time-honored Fuchun Teahouse in Yangzhou, Jiangsu province, was established in 1885, under the reign of Emperor Guangxu (1871-1908) in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
Fuchun Teahouse is famous for its original tea and dim sum. In December 2006, the teahouse was recognized by the Ministry of Commerce in the first batch of China time-honored brands.
The teahouse combines flowers, tea art, dim sum and other dishes together, allowing people to appreciate delicious food and fragrant tea in a quiet, elegant environment.
