  • Compact museum with interesting info on the history and evolution of tea in China. Located among tea fields. What we liked most was the tea tasting at the Tea Appreciation & Culture centre in the camp...  more »
  • Perfectly working commercial structure. The tea they are selling is really good, but also expensive, and their trick with iodine is not a fair one 
  • Quite disappointing. Few things translated into English, very outdated exhibits, only the historical part is interesting... Nice views of the plantations out of the Museum and back on the road. Museum not easy to find when you are travelling alone, without a guide. Mandatory bus (lines 27/87) but there is no indication the judgment we missed... allowed us to see the plantations! Pretty mediocre shop too... Hangzhou deserves a more modern museum as that of silk, sublime.

  • A wonderful museum in a great location. Thorough but doesn't go off topic. We got pulled for a free tea tasting as well!
  • Excellent museum about Chinese tea culture and history! In the restaurants nearby you can put your knowledge into practice!
  • 你可以在這邊看到採茶製茶的流程,現場有演練中國的茶道,走各10幾分鐘就可碰到西湖,周邊走走很不錯.千萬不要再博物館裡買茶,非常的貴.
