Jin Xuan doesn’t really highlight many specialty cocktails, though there is a wide selection of alcohols and wines available. What is more special at the restaurant (located in the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Ritz-Carlton Shanghai, Pudong) is its booklet of very high-end teas that you’re presented with at the beginning of the meal. The 10-plus-page manual takes tea lovers on a journey through the oldest tea culture in the world. If you so desire, Jin Xuan’s house tea specialist can explain the different regions, species and terroir that make each of the different leaves unique. You can even request a tea pairing for your meal, as the steeped leaves can be just as deep and subtle as a good glass of wine.
