thank you awesome stuff... i saw it before but i always wondered why it is so long, i really no kidding thought it had something to do with kung fu lol..
anyway fresh roasting the tea, this place seems like haven.. i never knew life would be so nice in china......

people always talk bad in media, but for me living standard must be awesome, when you drink tea freshly roasted....
in germany you must be happy if your tea is from this year and not last year.... and they get all that super freshness, for this teahouse alone one day i have to go to hangzhou

...may be a novelty or tourist trap? Even in Hangzhou, it can be difficult to find real Long Jing. I even had a Chinese professor of mine tell me that most of the "long jing" consumed in Hangzhou is actually grown in Sichuan province, which I find difficult but not impossible to believe.
