Life in Beijing - Drink

Both tea and alcohol have a long and important history in China and have been the drinks of choice of all, from peasants to the imperial family.

Beijing houses an enormous number of traditional teahouses, where one can enjoy a selection of teas and snacks while playing cards, chess or watching performances on a stage. Teahouses range in price and style from local houses that charge 1RMB for a cup to palaces offering private performances of opera and a banquet to accompany your tea!

China is also home to some of the world's best, worst and strongest alcohol, including Beijing's local Er Guo Tou, at a staggering 65%. Beer is the standard evening drink in Beijing, most of it coming from Qingdao, originally a German brewery.
