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.

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
