Now, at the Guanyin Pavilion Teahouse in Peng Town, Chengdu, you can still drink the same tea as a hundred years ago. It is in the same 100-year-old decoration environment as if you were in the old days. The teahouse is lined with old tea tables and old bamboo chairs and is decorated with the Quotations from Chairman Mao Tsetung in the Cultural Revolution era. The majority of tea guests are elderly people and very few middle age and young people. Some old people play cards, some hold teapots to chat, smoke, and some silently, only listening quietly as time goes by slowly and silently.
