Hupao or Dreaming of the Tiger Spring (simplified Chinese: 虎跑梦泉; traditional Chinese: 虎跑夢泉; pinyin: Hǔpáo Mèngquán) is a spring and park in southwestern Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, China.

The water from the spring itself seeps out from quartzite and is regarded as among the finest in China.[1] The water is popular for brewing teas, such as the local specialty, Longjing tea.

Tiger spring is also the burial place of monk Jigong.
