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.

Good farmer's food available. Supposedly, it was all organic except for the seafood. It overlooks the tea plantations.

On our daytrip to Hangzhou this was part of the tour. It was a beautiful drive there, but coming from the West Lake you should stop on the way there to take pictures. We got an introduction to how the tea was produced and then a longer sales pitch where all the benefits of green tea was presented. We were... More

This seems a bit of a muddled category of reviews, some people are reviewing the village of Longjishan and the general area. I am specifically reviewing the "Tea Cultural Village", a sales operation where they take tour buses on the outskirts of the village. We spent an awkward 90 mins at this place after driving a long way to get... More

This was fun, but expensive. We visited as part of a China Tour.com trip. I would not go out of my way to visit if traveling solo, but it was fun as part of a group.

This tea "village" is absolutely inundated with tour groups, and the overall experience is very much commercilzed, and feels very very artificial. The focus seems to be getting each group through the tea-tasting sessions, which are really just another way to sell you their over-priced tea. Reputable tea dealers in town often offer much better prices for the same stuff,... More

not too sure if true or not but i have heard from others that this village puts a chemical in the tea to induce its visitors to purchase products by the end of the tea tasting session. can anyone confirm this? i was too afraid to take a sip of the tea because of the vulnerability of purchasing the famous...

The people are so friendly and the scenery is outstanding. We had lunch here and locked the keys in the car. The owner of the restaurant was very kind and found a man to help open the car for us. Meanwhile I took my children into the tea plantations and we enjoyed relaxing in the restaurant.
