  • I thought that this building itself was only free of charge. It might be good if you are interested in tea utensils. There is a place to experience Chinese tea in the immediate vicinity, so it might be a good idea to go both. The place is in the park, so you can take a walk calmly.

  • Interesting tea pot and tea cup exhibits. Also explains in nice detail the traditional way to make tea. Nearby tea shop also serves tea (no tea ceremony) and vegetarian snacks.
  • Pretty neat little museum. Having lived in Ceylon and experienced a lot of black tea, it was neat to learn more about the Chinese flavor of green tea and its history. Worth a visit if you’re nearby.
  • Make certain to go and take advantage of a docent tour. Very informative. I wish we were on time to have seen teas being served. Perhaps next time.
  • Unless you are an absolute at the piano or tea this is probably not worth a visit on its own. However if you are in the vicinity on park then this is a lovely place to take a break. It's also one of the few opportunities one has of having a comparative tasting of Chinese tea
  • Loved it! The exhibition tells the story of tea ceremony traditions and applicable teaware and showcases modern designers' teaware. For parents with kids: check out the cool tea-theme playroom!
