  • Previously had spent five days in Hangzhou, long Jing village, around the temple, including legs stretched out, we went sightseeing. Was not able to come away down the wrong bus is I wanted to stop by at the time. This tour in Hangzhou, a destination Museum was looking forward to. Place during the treks. Saddling the Museum because it was also feautres shop but unfortunately, trapped in a gazebo in the back, finished only in tea tasting and shopping. Longjing tea, but price is higher because it didn't buy. Felt the towels, tea tools travel had bought more cheaply in other cities, so high in the general store. Scenery around is really beautiful.

  • 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.
