Services & Facilities
Minimally staffed midweek offseasonIt’s about a 20 minute walk from the gondola station past a number of tea houses. We were there midweek offseason. There was almost no staff there and no information given in English. Yes, there was free hot tea offered - but it wasn’t labeled in either Chinese or English - and clean restrooms. You can catch the #15 bus just outside to go down and avoid the walk back to the gondola station.
Great views with great teaThis 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.

Free tea... What elseGreat 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.
Local Tea Local FarmA good place to visit if you are making a trip to Wenshan. Do note that you may not be charged for tea but those serving tea are actually local farmers whose farms are inaccessible and are allocated a schedule by the government at the centre to promote their tea. Do not take advantage of them! Do buy from the farmers if you really want to help their community. Additional activity: You can buy fish feed at NT10 and feed the overweight kois while enjoying the scenery.

Sample a cup of free teaThe 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.
