So meandering along Longjing Tea Plantation together with enjoying the flowers in Prince Bay Park should be at the top of your sight-seeing list during one of Hangzhou’s most colorful and blossoming seasons.

A Date with Tea


Hangzhou not only produces fine green tea but also varieties of high quality black tea. Tea is an integral part of any leisurely holiday in Hangzhou and its lingering fragrance together with its fresher than fresh taste is really known come to life after the very first spring rain.

A Walk in Longjing Tea Plantation


Inquiring About Tea at Dragon Well (Longjing) is one of the New Top 10 Views of West Lake and it is, here, in Longjing Village that you can see the 18 tea-trees planted by Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1711-1799) and enjoy the best Longjing Tea in China. If you want to stay in a farmer’s house and bask in the spring sunshine while sipping a cup of authentic Longjing tea, the unassuming Meijiawu Village will be sure to refresh you with its picturesque scenery and laid back atmosphere.
