About this listing
My tea mountain house is located in a quite mountain village outside of Hangzhou city. The quite village revolves around the growing of the famous LongJing tea. Come here if you want to learn more about tea and traditional Chinese culture.
The house is located within the peaceful mountains of the outskirts of Hangzhou city. It has two spacious bedrooms, one in which I live. The spacious guest bedroom has a big bed (chinese style so perhaps a little hard, but good for you back :), private bathroom (hot water) and toilet. Furthermore the house has a large outside patio, roof terrace, and kitchen, which all can be used.
The guests are allowed to freely use the kitchen, roof terrace, outside patio. I have a washing machine, wifi and free coffee and tea.
Interaction with Guests
As this is my house I will frequently be around. Usually during the weekdays I have work. In my spare time I can show guests around the neighborhood and teach them about my interests in tea culture, calligraphy and Chinese traditional medicine.
My house is located in the quite mountain village 'wengjiashan‘ (翁家山村)a 10 minutes taxi drive from Hangzhou city. The local people all grow the Longjing tea because of the surrounding tea plantations. In the area you can go on many beautiful walks and hikes. Things worth seeing include: ancient buddhist caves, beautiful viewpoints, temples, tea plantations and more. Their are very few tourists around here and the village is quite, which will make your stay very relaxing and peaceful.
The best way to arrive at the village is either by taxi or by local bus.
- By Taxi:
From Hangzhou trainstation you can take a taxi to Manjuelong Road Yangmeiling(满觉陇路杨梅岭) (30rmb), which takes about 20 min
- By Public transport:
From Hangzhou trainstation you must first take busline 'Y2' to Changqiao (长桥)where you have to change onto line '87', where you have to get of at Yangmeiling bus station (杨梅岭). (In total around 1 hour)
If I don't have time to meet you at the bottom of the village you can walk up the main village road for 5 minutes until you see a house with two rooms and a roof terrace. That's the one :)
For getting back into the city center I recommend taking line 87 from the Yangmeiling bus station (杨梅岭) near the village.
Other Things to Note
I will always make a healthy chinese breakfast for the guests in the morning, which is included in the price. If I am around for dinner I also can cook. I like simple, seasonal and healthy chinese food. Good for body and mind :)
For lunch you can either buy stuff at the local village shops and cook at home, or have some in the city.
