Tea in the Garden

China - Huxin Pavilion, Shanghai

Notes: Depending on which website you look at, this is either the Huxingting Teahouse or the Hu Xin Ting Tea House.  Whichever one it is, it is located in the Yu Garden in Shanghai.  Construction on the garden began in 1559.  It was built by Pan Yunduan as a comfortable place for his elderly father.  It suffered damage numerous times during the 19th and 20th centuries, but was restored between 1956 and 1961, and opened to the public in 1962.
