    無料のお茶も!猫空にあるお茶に関する展示施設
    お目当ての茶房に行った帰りに立ち寄りました。このエリアは台湾鐵觀音の発祥の地のようで、お茶の生産工程の紹介など、ちょっとした社会見学ができるところです。 館内には、休憩できる場所もあり、蛇口から出てくる無料の鐵觀音はとても美味しかったです。 中庭のような屋外スペースもあって、休憩に立ち寄るにもおススメです。

    ひと休みにはいいいかも
    猫空散策中に見つけて寄ってみました。 展示は、特にこれといったものはありませんでしたが、烏龍茶がセルフで飲めるようになっています。 日曜に行ったのですが、近くの茶園の方が実演販売のようなことをしていて(週末だけ?と言っていたような)、ここで作られるのは鉄観音茶と包種茶だけであること、両者の味の違い、などを英語中国語混じりで教えてくださいました。

    Everything about tea
    There's a exhibition about tea making. If you want you can learn something about tea ceremony and different kinds of tea. There's free tea for all (head to the left at the entrance, there's a tap and a store with mugs)

My wife and I walked into the Tea Center and the best thing about it was the fact it had a bathroom. There wasn't anyone helpful at the center. I recommend just going into the tea shops nearby. My wife and I went to a great tea shop just past the Tea center where every one there was really friendly. I couldn't read the name but it was a three story large shop where you have to climb some stone stairs just around the corner of the Tea Center.

This place offers free Chinese tea experience without you need to purchase any tea. Nice garden at the back and clean toilets. There are tables with breathtaking views.

Great gondola ride here. A short walk from the station lies this gem of a place. It's so peaceful and everyone loves feeding the fish. Even more... There's free tea for everyone. Just make sure you take a cup from the clean shelf not the used shelf like I did. If your in the area give this place a go.

The Tea Promotion Center is ~ 20 min walk from the Gondola stn. It is a nice spot to take a rest, go use the clean restrooms & sample a cup of tea. The small museum (free) has a few harvesting equipment & displays showing how the tea are harvested & processed. Outside in the courtyard, there is a small garden (self-guided) trail showing the different types of tea plants. You cab buy fish food ($10ntd/bag) to feed the koi fish in the indoor pond. The koi fish will follow you around waiting for treats. The facility has a wheelchair accessible lift.

The visitor centre, is really only one room showing you how tea was made in the past and how it is made now. The best part is the free tea tasting from one of the local tea growers. We sat with them for 30 mins sampling different types of tea. Very kind people, excellent tea.

Great to see how tea is made and you're also able to try some of it. It's a bit far away compared to the other places but I'd say it's worth it- there's also a "healthy trail" which is very nice just out on the opposite side of this place.

The Tea Promotion Center is about a 20 minute walk from the Gondola station. I read 15 but no way was it 15!

In it, there is a small, teeny tiny museum of tea machinery, a pond of fish that you can feed for $10NT, and a tea information table where they teach you about tea and how to pour it, etc. Oh, and when you walk in, you can grab a clean cup from the cabinet and serve yourself tea and sit at the tables and enjoy the view. There are also tea houses in the area but we didn't get to do that because we got our tea fix at the Promotion Center and had a dinner reservation to get to.

We took the bus down which was crazy. There are lots of twists and turns and the driver drives as if he's in a race to get down. It's nuts and nauseous. The bus is packed full of people but it's super cheap at $15NT.

It's free entry and comes with a small area which briefly introduces various types of tea. It also serves free TieGuanYin which you can drink and chill while looking at greenery. (If you are ok budget) you don't have to visit the cafes since there is free tea here. It's a good pitstop before you embark your journey to the various trails.

I went to Pothole using the Tea Promotional Centre Trail.

We walked along here from the cable car station and there are great views along the way. The centre offers a free cup of tea but not much else. There are toilets and entry is free. Stop in if you are passing.

Its a 15 min walk to to the center from the Maokong Station and there really is not much to see besides the small tea exhibit (which the plaques are all in Chinese so if you do not know Chinese you will not be able to understand the exhibit).

They do offer free tea (it was the TieGuangYin Tea) but if order to see the tea garden you have to have a tour scheduled ahead of time. I was not able to get someone to give us a tour when we went.

It was a lot of walking to get there just for some tea.
