If you want to learn everything about tea in China, China National Tea Museum will impress you. The exhibition halls of China National Tea Museum are housed in pretty modern buildings set among ponds, gardens and rolling tea plantations. Several hours spent here will be most awarding, for you can not only get familiar with the origin, history, development, wares, replicas and varieties of tea, but also the profound tea culture.
The most important display presents a detailed history of the development of tea culture in China—from the plants' wild origins in Yunnan Province, to the early classic tea literature, to the rise of international trade in tea and the persistence of tea ceremonies until the present day.
During each March, it will host a tea festival. Tea aficionados will flock in from every direction. You can not only sample the most authentic Longjing Tea (Dragon Well Tea), but also can observe the millennium-old tea-cooking craft. The most expensive Longjing Tea is priced at over 100,000 RMB per 200g, which worth its weight in gold.
