Flying high. SAS and Wan Ling Tea House.

"Chinese scholars have long hailed tea's medicinal benefits and nobility have flaunted it as a status symbol for centuries. It first became popular among the masses in the Tang dynasty (618-907), when people would gather in humble tea houses to share news and ideas. While the teahouses have changed over the years - most recently into sleek design-led spaces - the habit of drinking tea remains burnt into the Chinese consciousness. Whatever the weather or activity, it's rare to see a Chinese person without their trusty Thermos, and the teahouses are as alive and well as ever".
