I understand that there are 13 grades of Longjing Tea. Can someone provide the reasonable price for the different grades and where to buy at non-tourst price. Thanks

Hi. I do not have much knowledge about tea, so I often bought tea in Tianfumingcha. It's a chain tea shop with uniform prices in many cities of China.

Hi,my job is tea, I had ever worked in a big tea company for ten years, now in xi'an I opened a tea shop and a tea house.I like my work very much.
if you would like to receive some messages about tea,of course ,specially Longjing tea,I would like to say you.
Longjing tea be a very famous green tea in China,its price is 80yuans--6000yuans /500g by different grades, it is better you buy the grade which price is 300-500yuans/500g, of course ,it must be non-tourst price, or the tea is bad.
IF you can find a tea shop in Hangzhou city ,which service local customers ,you will get the best price.
I don't know if you like tea, I would like to know many tea friends.if you would like to know more tea messages ,I am happy to answer you.
if you can't find the tea with the best price,please say me, I would like to help you.

Hi,
The Longjing tea is the best famous green tea in China,Some tourists like to buy it when they visit Hangzhou city.how they will buy the tea with non-tourist price?
Where:
There is a big tea market in the JieFang LU ,near the Second People's Hospital of Zhejiang Province, you will find many tea shops service local customers.you can go to the market by taxi from Xihu,it is about 15-16yuans.
How:
1)District: More near the Xihu the place of orgin,More expensive the tea price.so it is better not to buy "the Xihu Longjing tea", you can choose the Hanzhou Longjing tea, the Qiantang Longjin tea,the Dafo Longjing tea,..etc.
or you can choose these Longjing tea came from another provinces.
2)Season: the Spring Longjing tea is lesser than the Autumn's one,and the price is expensive ,it is about more than 300yuans/500g.but the Autumn tea is about 80yuans/500g(I often buy this tea ).
3)Difference:the Spring Longjing tea is more sweet,more Vitamins than the Autumn's one, and the Autumn tea is strong when you taste them.so the Spring tea only can be made 3-4times,and the Autumn tea can be made more times.
4)Way: you can ask for a saler make many kinds of Longjing tea and taste them,you will find the Longjing with good price.
by the way ,no any tourist can buy real the Xihu Longjing tea ,specially the spring's one.even a local customer seldom can buy it ,too.
please remember to ask the district and the season when you buy the Longjing tea.
Good trip!
