Longjing Tea – The Best Brew in Town 2017-05-11
Dragon Well widely known as Longjing originates from the Lion Peak Mountain in West Lake, Hangzhou and is apparently named after the dragon-like pattern that forms on top of the deep-filled well after it has rained.


Steeped in tea leaves and history Longjing’s notability began when Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty (1736-1795) visited the area and savoured its famous brew.

Green in colour and delicate in flavour, Longjing tea leaves are ideally brewed with local spring water. Known for its numerous health benefits this famous green variety has also been recognised as one of the highest in quality.

Tastefully approved by royalty, Hangzhou’s wondrous edible green leaves, whether sampled in tea or in cuisine, are best experienced in situ or in Hangzhou’s distinguished tea houses or restaurants.

Hangzhou, Soaked in Traditional Chinese Medicine2017-11-21
Traditional Chinese medicine has a time-honored history. As early as ancient times, through the process of struggling with nature, traditional Chinese medicine was created. When searching for food, it was discovered that plants could relieve symptoms, which is the origins of traditional Chinese medicine; hot rocks or sand and earth wrapped up with furs or tree barks eased pain when warming oneself by a fire, which is how moxibustion came into being. It is also during the process of producing tools, that the ancient Chinese discovered the stabbing of some parts of the body can ease the pain of some other parts of the body, and that is how acupuncture come into being.
