The Way of Tea at Amanyangyun


Opened this year, amid a flourishing forest of camphor trees and on the shores of a tranquil lake, Amanyangyun will present three days of tea ceremonies that will enlighten and balance guests.

Amanyagyun, meaning ‘nourishing cloud’ and deeply rooted in connection to China’s cultural past, is the fourth destination from Aman in China and opened in January this year. This serene retreat provides a striking and welcome contrast to the bustling city of Shanghai. For the month of October, from 19th to 21st, Taiwanese tea master Xie Zhizhang will visit Nanshufang to present three days of tea ceremonies, exclusively for Aman guests.

Her outdoor tea ceremonies are one of the most sought-after experiences among China’s tea aficionados. guests residing in Amanyangyun’s Antique Pavilions have the rare privilege of sharing in Xie’s expertise as she presents her personal tea collection in a ceremony beneath the resort’s Emperor Tree – the tallest and eldest tree in the resort’s camphor forest.

Nanshufang, once a 17th-century school, is a villa as the spiritual and cultural centre standing at the heart of Amanyangyun. Named after the royal reading pavilion in the Forbidden City and furnished with the Nanmu wood characteristic of Ming interiors, Nanshufang is a modern interpretation of the scholars’ studios of the ancient Chinese literati – a space to learn, contemplate and practice traditional crafts such as calligraphy, music and painting.

Across the courtyard in a newly built wing, nine rooms have been created to host cultural activities ranging from guqin music lessons to traditional tea ceremonies. This autumn, Nanshufang invites Aman guests to experience and understand the role of tea as a means of self-cultivation – the Chinese Way of Tea.
