Hupao Spring and Longjing Tea have been well renowned and acclaimed as ¡°two top specialties of West Lake.¡± Slight aroma of Longjing Tea made with sweet Hupao Spring water is absolutely refreshing. In the flourishing spring, the city has an intoxicating atmosphere created by tea as well as flower fragrance. On the afternoon of April 11, the 6th ¡°Two Top Specialties of West Lake¡± series activities were started in Hupao Park.

As the Chinese saying goes, ¡°water is the mother of tea.¡± The quality of tea lies with the quantity of beneficial substances that are dissolved in water, the taste, the aroma and the color. Hence, water plays an important role in making a cup of nice tea. As Hupao Spring water is clean and low in organic content, the aroma and taste of Longjing Tea is not distracted, which ensures that tea drinkers will enjoy the very authentic taste of Longjing Tea. Moreover, Longjing Tea is a top-class green tea in China and its anti-oxidative and free radical cleaning effects are enhanced by the microelements in Hupao Spring, which better safeguards tea drinkers¡¯ health.
