I have been living in Hangzhou for decades. You can call me Lao Qian(Emailqlhai401@hotmail.com). I have several guest houses on AirBnB. My friend Lao Yao is a tea farmer in Hangzhou where his family has been tea farmers for many generations. Lao Yao is a certified Manual Tea Frying Technician in Hangzhou with decades of experiences. Lao Yao lives in a farm in Xihu District of Hangzhou City. Lao Yao’s farm grows Xihu Longjing tea allover its hills. Due to its climate and soil, only the Xihu District of Hangzhou City produces the genuine Xihu Longjing tea. Spring is the best time for picking tea leaves. We welcome you to visit our tea farm, and be a tea farmer for a day. You will experience the joy of picking your own tea leaves, watching a demonstration of tea leaf frying, and tasting tea with us. If you stay in my guest house, I will drive you around with my car. If you stay somewhere else, we can send you locations for your convenience.
