This year marks the 30th anniversary of the founding of the China National Tea Museum, which is located in Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province.
The museum, which is renowned as China's only national tea culture-themed museum, has two sections: the Shuangfeng section and the Longjing section.
The combined areas total nearly 13,000 square meters. The museum integrates various functions and services related to scientific research, academic exchanges, as well as tea skills training.
Over the next few weeks, the museum will hold a slew of activities including an exhibition of the museum's culture and history.

The museum has called on the public to donate or sell their tea culture-related relics. Relic owners can call +86 0571-87979221 if they are interested.
In late March and early April, the museum will hold two forums on the protection and development of West Lake Longjing tea, as well as the development of tea culture.
