Feng Tang Exhibition Entrance Ticket


From now to September 10, renowned artist, novelist and calligrapher Feng Tang collaborates with Mandarin Oriental Pudong, Shanghai to host his private calligraphy exhibition ‘HAVE THE WILD TEA.’ 

Home to a vast collection of 4,000 curated art pieces, the Mandarin Oriental makes a perfect venue for the artist’s exclusive exhibition.

Feng Tang’s exhibition comprises about 30 calligraphy pieces and a calligraphy fan dedicated to the hotel, to be on display throughout the hotel’s lobby bar, creating a unique experience for audiences.

Artful installations will be displayed at the extensive outdoor area of the venue, making it a picture-perfect spot for social media postings.

To celebrate this calligraphy exhibition, David Fan, Head Bartender at the Mandarin Oriental, has crafted two special tea-infused cocktails, named after Feng Tang’s calligraphy works ‘Wild Form’ and ‘Tea Form.’

Guests will be amazed and delighted as they sip on the creative drinks while appreciating the artist’s calligraphy works.

Wild Form


Inspired by the vast and wild landscape, which resembles the ever-changing humanity, ‘Wild Form’ combines vodka with traditional Biluochun tea for a transparent green color and a delightfully silky texture.

The gently sweet floral notes of the green tea are enhanced by the addition of elderflower syrup, and the combination yields a mix of fresh, light flavors.

Tea Form


Feng Tang once said, “To know tea is close to Zen.” The Oneness of tea and Zen occupies a dominant position in Zen thought in the tea ceremony, and time can be tasted by drinking fully fermented, brewed tea.

This amber-coloured cocktail is a creative blend of Zhengshan black tea, whiskey, and honey. The refreshing, slightly bitter fragrance will turn into a pleasant herbaceous taste that lingers in the mouth.

Our price: RMB128*
