Chinese Tea House “The Cry of the Dragon”

The Chinese Tea House is uniquely situated right within the exquisite Chinese Garden. The walled garden, “Hidden Kingdom  of Ming”, including the Tea House “The Cry  of the Dragon”, was designed by the city architect of Shanghai and built by Chinese workers using authentic Chinese building and landscaping materials. The Chinese Tea House is an ideal location for birthday parties, receptions, anniversary celebrations or other special occasions. Weather permitting, you can take your party out to the terrace and enjoy the view of the waterfall. The Tea House can also be reserved for business meetings. Equipment such as a beamer with screen and a wireless microphone is available.

It is also possible to book The Chinese Tea House for the evening, after the Hortus has closed. Both the upstairs and downstairs spaces can be used, and the Tea House can be booked for parties of 25-120 persons. The top floor contains a large hall and two side rooms, making it a great place to celebrate any occasion, including weddings. In consultation with you, we can arrange for a complete catering, from coffee service, to lunch buffet to four-course dinners.
