Silk Road, yes. But Tea Horse Road? – Channel News Asia [October 2010]
The Silk Road connecting the East and West is probably one of the most historically significant trade routes.
But have you heard about the Tea Horse Road?  Well, if a group of Chinese scholars from the southwestern province of Yunnan could have its way, the ancient Tea Horse Road will soon be up there on the world tourism map.

Hangzhou has been one the nation’s most important tea production bases since the Tang Dynasty (AD618-907).

Famous for its emerald green color, aromatic flavor and sweet taste, Longjing (Dragon Well) Tea, is grown in mountainous areas along West Lake near Longjing Village.
