We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Wuyutai Tea Store

Founded in 1887, the headquarter of Wuyutai tea store (吴裕泰) is situated at No.4-17, Jiaodong Community, Dongcheng District. Wu Xiqing, from She county, Anhui, set up Wuyutai tea stack in the 13th of Emperor Guangxu (in 1887). After hundreds of years’ development, nowadays, Wuyutai owns more than 260 chains, one distribution center, one exhibition hall of tea culture, one performance team of tea art and three tea houses. It is the component of Beijing culture.

After Yuan Dynasty, people who drank tea increased gradually. In Ming Dynasty, tea custom became popular in Beijing. In Qing Dynasty, Manchu officials got into the habit of drinking tea in free time. In this case, Wuyutai build up a basic idea of running –catering for common people, which was commended by the public. At that time, people outside the city bought tea in Wuyutain, even if they walked dozens of mile.



















Development of Wuyutai
Incontrovertibly, a gateway in the east Beixinqiao is the cradle of Wuyutai tea store, where Wuyutai is standing now. It was said that the place used to be a gate of a declined giants mansion. After years of accumulation, Wu family bought the gateway and established a store, named Wuyutai tea stack. At that time, Wuyutai mainly engaged in storage, transport and wholesale. After years of mastermind with painstaking effort, Wuyutai gained a foothold in Beijing.
 

In the late Qing Dynasty, Wuyutai tea store was extended to over 10 chains. Master Wu divided all of his property into five pieces on behalf of d “benevolence (仁), justice (义), courtesy (礼), wisdom (智) and honesty (信)”.


















They were distributed to his five sons equally. In order to facilitate the management, three of the brothers merged property and set up a manage institution called “brother company of  courtesy, wisdom and honesty”. In the early 1900’s, Wuyutai built up a tea house named Yusheng Tea House at the area of Beidaguan in Tianjin.
