China with Polish Characteristics

Tea shop video

Filed under: Uncategorized — chinatalk @ 7:07 am

Finally got myself a small camera and got a chance now to run around the city recording some of my favorite places on tape. I’ll try to post something every week, including interviews and short pieces on politics and BJ’s culture. The first one, which you can watch below is a mini-feature on a tea shop near where I live – I’ve spent many evenings there, chatting with the owners and local people and enjoying enough Fujian tea to stay awake untill 3am in the morning (you out there who think coffee has a strong kick… try sampling tieguanyin and pu’er in one sitting).

Enjoy! Let me know if you liked it and what kinds of videos would you be interested in seeing.


  1. Hi I just discovered your blog, i’m a spaniard who will be moving soon to beijing to study chinese for some years, your blog is very useful to know more about the place before i get there.
