Photographer's Note

Longjing Tea is one of the ten most famous teas in China. It is said that Longjing tea is the beauty among all the teas, which has combined not only the green color, the strong fragrance, aromatic taste and beautiful shape, but also with the famous mountains, temples, lakes, and springs.
Longjing tea contains a variety of nutrients, like amino acid, catechins, vitamin C etc, which surely is a kind of natural and healthy drink.
The ways of drinking tea are very different in each country. Europeans drink tea just like drinking coffe, just as a kind of food(right?); yet for Chinese, they taste more, from a nice cup of tea, they feel a kind of traditional culture of China, which is called 'teaism'. While you travelling in China, you can usually enjoy a tea ceremony offered.(But on that ceremony, you are not necessarily to have first-class tea to drink:))
