Longjing village located in the southwest side of West Lake Scenic Area is the most authentic and original site producing the Dragon Well Tea. It was once visited by Queen Elizabeth and Bill Clinton and other famous Prime Minister and governors. The most famous tourist attractions in Longjing Tea Plantation include Yucha Park, Lord Hu Temple, Jiuxishibajian, Shili Langdang and Old Dragon Well. These sites located in downtown Hangzhou but keep their original looks and surroundings. They are the best sites for leisure or bicycle travel.

Dragon well tea Village is surrounded by mountains, trending from north to south, and the village resident population of about 800 people. It has nearly 800 acres of high mountain tea garden. In the northwest of the village, there are Beigao Peak, Lion Peak, Tianzhu Peak. They become the natural barrier to resist breeze wind. In the south, there is a streamlet called Nanxi. This creek valley is very wide, and it straight towards Qiantang River. Southeast wind blow into the valley in spring and summer. So ventilation makes the tea grow well and geography conditions provide a unique advantage.

In this area, the tea booth (Chatan) and small tea house (Chaliao) existed longtime ago. During the Song Dynasty, Chasi and Chafang, where tea was sold, were already ubiquitous. The tea shop industry was further developed in the Ming Dynasty. At the same time, the business of selling big bowls of tea began prosperous in Beijing and was included as a formal industry into 360 industries. During the Qing Dynasty, since the Manchu aristocracy often spent their time in tea houses, they become important activity places for people from all walks of life, such as high officials, merchants and underlings, there. To the Chinese people, tea house, similar to the cafes in western countries, are social places where various kinds of social information are gathered and spread and where customers taste tea and talk about birds, news and daily things. In order to attract customers, stages are built in some tea houses to play comic dialogue, tom-tom, storytelling (pingshu), and Beijing opera, making these tea houses amusement places. The drama Tea House, written by famous Chinese writer Lao She, revealed vividly the unstable society of the last phase of the Qing Dynasty through describing various kinds of people’s words and behaviors in a tea house.

Overall, Longjing Tea Plantation is the perfect place to enjoy the leisure from picking tea, tasting the green tea and viewing the chadao performance. In Hangzhou, Longjing Tea Village is also the classic tourist sites that nearly all the travelers may have a trip over there.
