Your visit to Hangzhou won’t be complete without an afternoon spent in Longjing Tea Plantation, where Longjing Tea, one of the China’s best green tea, thrives.
Longjing (龍井; pinyin: lóngjǐng), literally “Dragon Well”, is a name applied to a number of locations and products from the southwestern region of the city of Hangzhou. Most notably, the name refers to the titular Dragon Well itself, located near Longjing village (龙井村; pinyin: lóngjǐng cūn). The Dragon Well region consists of a number of villages, tea plantations, tea houses, parks, and a temple.
This place is suitable for the planting of the famous green tea. Longjing Tea is one of China’s best teas and is one reason for Hangzhou’s international fame. The tea is grown in the Longjing mountain area of Hangzhou, southwest of the West Lake.
A trip to the village of Longjing is a drive along the verdant mountains. Tea terraces rise up on either side of the village and it’s an interesting area to walk around and watch the locals at work.
The flat and smooth tea leaves (resembling pine needles with a yellow to dark green color) brew a tea with light to dark green color, a fragrant scent, and a refreshing taste. The place is frequently visited by those who come for a taste of the Longjing tea, well noted for its greenness, fragrance, mellow taste, and beauty of tea leaves. The favorable geological conditions, agreeable climate and mineral-rich, fertile soil are keys to Longjing Tea’s impeccable quality and enduring legacy.
