1) Longjing Village is about 10 minutes car ride from Yangongdi. Meijiawu Village is about 2 times of the distance.

2) Sure

3) Not recommended to buy tea at place for foreigner, buy it in big department store in city center.

1) Which village would you recommend? Lonjing/ meijiawu?

2) Is there bus/ taxi from Yangondi and how much roughly is the difference in terms of fare price( In case it is raining on that day, otherwise will jog)

3) How about buying the tea from the farmers at Longjing Village? A tour guide drove me up there ( don't know where) once few years ago and I bought Ming Cian Long Jin 400g for RMB 400. Taste good but I don't know whether it is really Ming cian or not. hehe
