Sitting in the famous tea town, Longjing village by West Lake in Hangzhou, East China's Zhejiang province, China National Tea Museum is China's only national museum dedicated to tea and tea culture.

Covering an area of 7,600 square meters, the museum has 2,244 sq m for exhibition. It has been opened to the public since April 1991, and was a national professional museum jointly built by the China National Tourism Administration, the Zhejiang Provincial People's Government and the Hangzhou municipal government.

There are exhibition halls for the history, collection, businesses, properties and customs of tea, as well as an area displaying the art of making-tea. The tea art area is located in a typical tea-drinking building, where one can enjoy the performances of modern tea art, ancient tea art, Japanese tea ceremony, Jingshan tea ceremony, and Taiwan tea ceremony. The museum holds an international "West Lake tea party" on Tomb-sweeping Day each year.
