A good place to visit if you like tea drinking given its claim to be the best in the region. A panoramic view of the tea growing terraces as the road exits. The produces are sold after a tea drinking ceremony. A family friendly nature walk is enjoyable and if time permits a long leisurely walk is refreshing.

No idea why this place is number 30 in Hangzhou...was our highlight. Obviously the west lake is great but it is what it is, whereas this quaint place nicely up in the hills is how I really picture Hangzhou. You get dropped off at the mouth of a road and head down to the village, it seems like you are... More

This village gives you a typical look and feel of how tea plantations are grown and maintained (similar to India, ceylon etc) If you enjoy being with nature, like to go for long nature walks (with lots of people around - not solitary) then this is something you will enjoy. Else this can be missed from your itinerary. Unless you... More

Here you can see real plants growing in the plantations and you can learn the process of tea making . They explain to you how to prepare tea and they give u samples to try . Good quality tea is pricey , so be prepared.

Don't fall for it!. It's a hard sell of the benefits of tea and it's very, very expensive. Just go and enjoy the production process, and the peace the plantation offers. The disappointing aspect was the pride taken in telling us they keep the best tea for themselves and only export the inferior product.

Legend says Emperor Chien Long drank this tea and became the longest serving emperor in China. I bought a kilo of it and it tasted really good. Of course, there are many health benefits too. A great place for tea lovers. p/s: November 2012

You will love the Longjingshan Tea Cultural Village if you fancy tea or beautiful scenery, otherwise, you might not be so interested. There are a ton of outrageously priced shops and restaurants on the way, but my advice is once you enter just go straight to the end of the street and hike up the mountainside filled with tea plants....

First time to visit a real tea garden and supposedly the best in the area. Educational session about how tea is grown, hand-picked, processed. Taught proper way to pour tea for best flavor. Rather high prices for containers of freshly-cut and packaged-right-before-your-eyes tea leaves. Additional offerings of tea capsules to promote healing of all sorts of ailments. Easy to spend...

If you can withstand the exhortations to "come into my tea shop" this village is interesting to see. It is hard to choose between the many tea houses but all seem to offer great Longjing tea.
