Birds and tea and ... I can't remember the rest

Help me find a forgotten children's book! My memory of this is almost unforgivably hazy -- I read the book in the mid to late 1980s. The book (possibly all of it, maybe just the ending) takes place at a beautiful teahouse, I believe Chinese, where everyone brings their birds in cages.

The book may or may not involve an old man who was originally not allowed to come to the teahouse. I have a clear memory of vivid, brightly colored illustrations. Can you help me?
