“This is a little gem of a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2011

Our hotel recommended us to go visit this teahouse about 15min bus ride from Dazhai. Unfortunately the two guys did not speak english (but I could speak some so I was a translator for my family) but they told me when they have english speaking tourists they ask a friend of theirs who is an english teacher to translate. This is the genuine article, not made for tourists, they said they were there to educate people about tea and teach them how to appreciate tea, and at no time did they try to do sales pitch on their tea.
Not only that we were taken on a tour of their tea trees about 15mins hike uphill, then he asked if we would like to visit a local settlement of farmers, and off we went to see a 70year old farmhouse!
By the time we got back it was 1pm and we asked if we could buy lunch (this teahouse is a restaurant and hotel as well). The owners already had lunch prepared for themselves but invited us to join them, followed by another tea tasting, and a tour of their tea processing room. We ended up spending 5 hours there. Totally unexpected and very enjoyable and a good look at the local life.
There was no charge for the whole thing! We decided to buy more tea than we needed to repay their kindness! Very good green and red tea too!
