Anantara Spa at The PuLi Hotel and Spa offers a few refreshments to keep you satisfied and relaxed. During the spa’s pre-massage foot wash and scrub, a steaming cup of Chinese herbal tea is served. After your massage, the therapist will fetch a pot of sweet licorice-flavored tea paired with two shortbread cookies. While we weren’t offered coffee or juice options during our visit to the Shanghai spa, we were more than satisfied with the Chinese tea — it complements the surroundings and is both soothing and reviving after a massage. Plus, the whole treatment menu at the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa was inspired by the healing and ritualistic properties of tea, so it would be almost rude to order anything else.
