This is a must-do when visiting China. The institute is staffed by knowledgeable and enthusiastic people and the entire visit is professional but full of humour! The shop is also well stocked and rare types of tea can be bought.

This tea plantation is not large in apparent acreage, but does have a variety of teas. The growing/hand harvesting process is interesting and the mandatory gift shop had good product at reasonable prices.
