Despite I love really a lot Chinese tea, despite people where asking for feedback with interview to improve, at the time of my visit this museum was giving me the impression to be based purely on make money from tourists.
The area is nice, easily to reach from the West like taking a taxi for few euros. There are tea plants all around, of the famous West lake variety. The museum basically is also not bad: there is the tea story, there are explained how the tea was produced and all the different way of making tea and the different variety you can find (I discovered that yellow and white tea also exist).
However, once I arrived in the last room there was a girl asking "do you want to taste tea? the museum is finished, you can come with me there is nothing to see, look". But I was just entered in the room and I wanted to see, so for me it was not really nice. I understand they are forced to sell, but at least they could wait I arrive autonomously at the end. The tasting process was interesting but not as others I already had, so if you want to discover the Chinese tea ceremony, try to find a Chinese friend who can come with you or at least give you a trusted address, otherwise you will never lears what does it mean "tea ceremony".
Anyway, the museum can be interesting, just say kindly "no"!
