With Sharon as my very capable guide, I was able to fulfill my longtime goal of visiting the source of Lung Ching or Dragonwell tea. She and her driver provided me with exceptional service as we toured the gardens around West Lake, boated across the lake, visited the tea information center, the National Tea Museum and the legendary Dragon Well. The day began at 9:30 and I was delivered back to my hotel at 4:30. I highly recommend this experience for anyone who has an interest in Chinese tea.
Thank you to Bonnie for a wonderful tour! She made the entire experience fantastic because she knows so much about Hangzhou and the history of the area and tea!. The Tea Museum was wonderful, the tea plantation was beautiful, and our meal was really delicious. We had a private tour and did the West Lake boat ride last, and it was a great way to end our day.
