Zhejiang (浙江) is a province on the east coast of China, just north of Fujian and south of Jiangsu.

Most of Zhejiang province is covered with hills and ranges of small mountains. The region has a humid subtropical climate with distinct seasons and a seasonal precipitation pattern. Although the summers receive the most rainfall, following the pattern of the Asian monsoon, the winters also receive considerable rainfall as well. Total annual precipitation is considerably higher than provinces to the northwest.

Zhejiang is one of the most important provinces of China in tea production, both in quantity and quality. Many important styles of green tea originated in Zhejiang, including dragon well or long jing, gunpowder, and anji bai cha.

Hangzhou is the largest city in Zhejiang and the fourth-largest metropolitan area in China; in the tea world, teas produced "in Hangzhou", like dragon well green tea, refer to production in the broader prefecture-level region of Hangzhou, which includes more rural areas.
