China National Tea Museum information
Not far into the hills of Hángzhōu, you’ll begin to see fields of tea bushes planted in undulating rows, the setting for the China Tea Museum – 3.7 hectares of land dedicated to the art, cultivation and tasting of tea. Further up are several tea-producing villages, all of which harvest China’s most famous variety of green tea, lóngjǐng (dragon well), named after the spring where the pattern in the water resembles a dragon.
You can enjoy one of Hángzhōu’s most famous teas at the Dragon Well Tea Village , near the first pass.
Tourist bus Y3 or K27 will take you to the museum and the village.
