  • Beautiful white tea plantation. There's a guided tour which it's free of charge (which you're often reminded) which is quite informative and includes tea sampling and a cake :-) after that you have a chance to buy some products which is kind of unexpectedly very relaxed with no hard selling. You can also give a tip for the personals working here which should get divided among everyone.. really nice place to visit, best on a motorbike since the roads around have very little traffic and a beautiful countryside.
  • Good experience. They explain the process of making tea. You can taste all the varieties and find what you like. Good quality tea.

  • The best explanation about tea processing, good tea tasting opportunity to select the products.
