Detailed Itinerary


Day 1: West Lake, Dragon Well Tee plantation

Our guide will greet you at the hotel/train station early in the morning. After that, you will go to Meijiawu Tea Village, the most important tea production base in China, seated at the hinterland of West Lake Park. A local tea expert will welcome you at the door and accompany you during your tea garden journey. The tea expert will first tell you what appropriate tea leaves are and teach you the right way to pick them. After hearing from the tea expert, you can pick fresh tea leaves by yourself. Then the tea expert will show you the process of stir-drying the tea. If you like, you can have a try-- but be careful. The iron pot is very hot. Later, the tea experts will introduce the correct way to taste tea and share the art of the tea ceremony with you. You can take your tea home, or make a cup of tea right away so you will know the taste of your tea.
