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... More

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... More

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... More

Basically looked like a clean ghost town. Very few people around and the most interesting exhibit (the outdoor tea gardens were closed). Best thing about this place was the free cup of tea. If you're in the area anyway and need a restroom and a free drink, this is your place. So much unrealized potential here.

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.... More

My visit to this center must have occurred during the lunch/siesta time, as nary an employee was to be found. That’s OK though, as displays do include an English translation. It is a small and simple information center about the local teas (Tieh Kuan-yin and Pao-chong)– processing them, drinking them, classifying them. Tea production equipment is on display with an...
