Beijing's Big Bowl Tea

Danwei has translated the story of Big Bowl Tea that appeared in Beijing in 1977. Just like the first private restaurant story carried in this Blog earlier, the Big Bowl Tea was among the first private entrepreneur adventures in the earlier days of Deng Xiaoping's reform. They had gone through similar obstacles and hardships before they tasted success.

In fact, the owner of the first private restaurant mentioned the Big Bowl Tea when she recalled a visit by officials from national government, who had also visited the Big Bowl Tea folks.

The original Chinese version is here.
