We are sure you've passed this little spot on a stroll through Orioles Singing in the Willows park. This truly is one of the best areas around the lake, especially at night when the willows are lit up just right. If you take the main path all the way to the lake, Wenyingge Teahouse is the last building you'll see. Its prime locale on the water's edge affords drinkers a panoramic view of the dueling towers. This teahouse has a charm that you just can't find in the busy, colossal Hu Pan Ju because it sits in this less traversed area of the lake. Now that the mercury isn't quite so high, the patio seating is one of the best spots to slurp some tea and nibble on some bits. The food is typical teahouse fare, but the price isn't too bad, between 50 and 65 kuai for a variety of teas. There is also a small selection of coffees, but why ruin the experience. Yes, it can get noisy and crowded, but the table gets crowded as well with munchies. The simplicity and scenery of Wenyingge make it a teahouse worthy of being revisited, and that's something coming from us. *Note: There are two teahouses in this park that go by the name Orioles Singing. The other, more famous one sits in the middle and is a big un with much less character.
