To the tea garden that is no more

I was walking to lunch today in Beijing, and noticed that the tea garden where Susan and I once had tea in September 2003, is no more. It is a very quiet spot, which is what I liked about it. The relaxing live music, the calm atmosphere.

The alternative in the complex is opposite the grocery store, very noisy, very open. I think I will give it a pass.

The end of an era. Always difficult when you appeal to a certain demographic (people who like it quiet, in this instance), and then that is the exact thing that works against you in terms of business volume.

So, to the ex-owners of the ex-tea garden in the Guomao Centre mall, close to South Beauty, I salute you. Thank you for the memories.
