Long Jing (Dragon Well) tea is strongly associated by tourists with the Long Jing village by the Xi Hu lake. Do locals follow the tourists to the very same place to enjoy the best tea in early April?
Every person, which is somehow connected to the Chinese Tea culture knows about the Long Jing (Dragonwell) Tea. The best Long Jing tea is Xi Hu Long Jing that grows on nearby the Xi Hu (West Lake) in Hangzhou in Long Jing village. Not! Skip that touristic place and get yourself straight to the Mei Jia Wu village, the really best place to taste the Xi Hu Long Jing Cha (and perhaps, to take a few hundred grams home).
Nearby you can find the National Tea museum and lots of other picturesque sites such as Lingyin Temple (and nearby parks and caves), Baochu Pagoda, Lengfeng Pagoda and many others.
