Explored the Xintiandi area of Shanghai where there are cafes, high end designer stores, the Langham Hotel Shanghai and it seems to be an area with lots of expats.
I love the look of Cova cafe. But if you’re in Xintiandi, go to Sproutworks – they serve tea in mason jars! I expressed my excitement of getting to use a mason jar while ordering. One of the owners, who took my order and speaks English said the locals wonder what it is and how to use it!
It was for my iced barley no sugar tea for 18 yuan (about USD $3) with free refills.
