  • 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.
