Comments :-

Tea farming is also very popular in the Yilan Province .

The tea breeds originated from cuttings brought over from China - mainly from the Fukien Province . There about 6 to 7 varieties of green tea cultivated in the Yilan Province .

The best tea is still reputed from those grown in Mountain and the hill slopes .

This Tea farm has been cultivating tea for about 6 centuries . The speciality of the farm is the Spring green tea ( young harvest ) - which is light green in texture , fragrant but slightly grippy in taste.

However the best tea is the matured tea - about 30 to 40 years old. The old tea has a dark color , heavier bodied , smooth and soothing ( kam ) taste .

The interesting discovery is that the tea plant grows seeds and this can be processed to make tea oil.

Yes , there are many tea farms all over Taiwan and visiting and enjoying tea tasting is one of the pleasures of the Taiwan people.
