THupao Spring is one of the nicest parks in Hangzhou, filled with teahouses, well-tended trees and shady pavilions.
Legend has it that when the sage Xing Kong visited Hangzhou, he bemoaned the lack of fresh water and quickly made plans to leave. Suddenly, a god appeared before him and told him not to worry because two tigers had been dispatched to bring water here. Sure enough, the next day the tigers came running and spring water began to flow.
The spring remains (though the tigers have long gone) and is now one of the best-known in Hangzhou. The combination of the Longjing tea and spring water is reputed to be uniquely refreshing and healthful—try some and see by yourself.
