Longjing Tea Plantation 2018-11-16


Your visit to Hangzhou won’t be complete without an afternoon spent in Longjing Tea Plantation, where Longjing Tea, China’s best green tea, thrives. 
 
Bordered by Tianzhu Mountain and Beigao Peak to the north, Longjing Tea Plantation centered on Phoenix Hill spreads out gracefully. Spanning 240 hectares, the Longjing Tea Plantation resembles a green ribbon clinging to the gentle slopes elevated no more than 400m. It is enveloped by mist and clouds all year around. Along its foot, 8 villages: Longjing, Manjuelong, Jiuxi, Wengjiashan, Yangmeiling, Shuangfeng and Maojiabu shine as abodes of immortals. The favorable geological condition, agreeable climate as well as fertile and mineral-rich soil are the keys to Longjing Tea’s impeccable quality and enduring legacy. 


When the soaring peaks succeed in preventing the chilly north wind, West Lake, Qiantang River and Nine Creeks (Jiuxi) contribute to foster moisture and regulate temperature during the scorching summer. In these tea villages, you can pick some fresh Longjing Tea, marvel at intriguing tea process as well as enjoy the most authentic tea ceremony.
