Now is the perfect season for tea up in the hills

Visitors can take a ride at the tea plantations in Songyang County, close to Hangzhou

It is the prime season for fresh tea! The recent moist air, abundant rainfall and rising temperatures mean the leaves are at their tenderness. In Hangzhou’s Longjing, Meijiawu and Waitongwu villages, farmers are busy picking the leaves, and visitors from far and wide flock here for the most aromatic Longjing tea. In addition to Longjing tea, Zhejiang Province boasts many other varieties featuring refreshing tastes and mellow fragrances. The county’s long tradition of growing tea trees could date to the Three Kingdoms Period (AD 220-280).

The county boasts more than 1,150 hectares of tea. The core area has been developed into the Damu Mountain Tea Tree Garden, where there is an 8-kilometer bike path flanked by varied tea trees with viewing platforms, porches and tourist service centres. Visitors can ride through plantations. If they tire, they can stop at teahouses along the road.

How to get there: Hangzhou-Xin’anjiang-Jingdezhen Expressway — Jinhua-Lishui-Wenzhou Expressway — Songyang Exit.
