Experience tea picking and tea making in the organic plantation, smell the aroma, and taste different flavors of tea.


The East Rift Valley, the so-called last untouched land in Taiwan, has promoted pesticide-free organic farming in many years, and produces many kinds of excellent quality tea, like the honey-flavored black tea after leaves are sucked by tea green leafhoppers ( Jacobiasca Formosana), Oolong Tea, Assam Black Tea, and Gaba Tea
Tea belongs to camellia family of plants. Tea bush grows only in tropical and subtropical climate.
Tea is harvested by hand, not all leaves are picked during harvesting but only a few top young and juicy leaves with a portion of the stem on which they have grown and the so-called bud
Tea, and more specifically, how you drink it, is an important part of Taiwanese local culture. Over 400 years ago, the first settlers to Taiwan from Mainland China brought with them a complex tea culture, which has only been added to and developed more by further immigration waves from Japan and the west. The result is a Taiwanese tea culture that is an intricate, social and very tasty part of local life
