Tea Garden

Dalun Shan Tea Garden locates in Lugu Township, Nantou County, Taiwan. The tea is planted in the area at the altitude of 1000 meters. This High Mountain tea is known as its obvious floral fragrance. The tea garden gets very strong sunshine in the morning, but completely covered by fog in the afternoon. Additionally, high altitude, dense forest and good soil create favorable growing conditions for tea trees. This environment causes the tea leaves to accumulate a lot of substances. That's the reason why tea produced at Dong Ding Mountain gives a very strong flavor and sweet after taste. You can easily recognize the difference once you've taste our tea.

History

Oolong tea was first developed during the early 1700's in the Fujian area of China. As a cross between non fermented green teas, and the fully fermented black teas, that combines the best of both in a single tea, Oolong teas quickly became popular all through eastern China and Taiwan. Nowadays Anxi is the biggest producing area of Oolong tea, with the representative Tie Guan Yin Oolong Tea.

In the year 1855, Linfengchi removed Oolong tea trees from the Wuyi Mountains in the Fujian Province of China and traveled to DongDing, which is in Lugu, Taiwan. Once he arrived in Taiwan, he replanted the tea trees, beginning the history of the Dong Ding Oolong, one of Taiwan's most famous teas. During 1858, a British company at that time called Jardine Mantheson & Co. bought semi-finished Oolong tea from Taiwan, spreading it around the world.
